The Pulse - 2010w07


Sensing the living LMR community since 2008w43.


Pulses are sparse and they shoot by in the blink of an eye. Make sure you have your automatic trigger set up and armed. Or you will miss it.

Today’s Pulse is filled with recent projects requested by Frits.


Mmmmm, robots

How about a complementing L-bot and R-bot? Make them walk together, they could, like, "write LMR".



Wet robots are all the rage at the moment. Does snow count as wet?

This Whirligig is another creation by Geir. It is different from most LMR robots because it actually has a job: mapping the bottom of a lake. When it's not frozen over anyway.


Sound is about right

No robot is really complete unless it makes sound. Apart from the annoying "kgrrrrggrrg" of plastic gears. Droidbuilder describes a way to use the SpeakJet voice synthesizer. Gooze created a robotic musical instrument. It plays the xylophone with marbles.


You scared me at “Hello”

It’s sightings like these that give roboticists a bad name. It’s scary, potentially insulting, mysterious and beautifully ugly. But the real offence here is LACK OF VIDEO!

Bad, bad roboticist!


Too cute for his own good

What Walter lacks in horror potential, he makes up for in videos.

Walter is not just a robot any more. He has become a house hold name at LMR. Does the longest running project on LMR even qualify as "'recent"? I say it does.

Linking to one page is pointless here. Walter has transcended into a search term.

I dare to go one up: Walter is a tag!



Final thoughts
