When your hunting tricky network bugs, its helpful sometimes to draw a map of where the bugs might be hiding.  I had to do this to get the (last?) networks bugs which were hiding out in an involved service registration process.  Added new feature to MRL too - the capability to spawn other MRL instances.


Peak-A-Boo Tutorial showing voice control and image template matching

Started this post to help us get an idea of what a very cool demo would be utiliizing voice control, servos, saving images, and image template matching in MRL.

The general tutorial (so far) should be a game of Peek-A-Boo 

The instructor has a scene of simple object.

The instructor tells the pan/tilt kit to look away

It looks away

The instructor asks which object is gone

the robot tells which is gone

Yesterday my family and I visited the Palm Springs Art Museum.  It was a great tour.  On the top floor we saw a electronic light scuplture by Jim Campbell entitled (Birds)

Gareth was successful in using the Tracking service - no video at the "momo" but he graciously put this picture up on G+

More to come... hopefully !

Here's the pan / tilt kit I slapped together.  Not pretty, but functional enough to do testing with.  It's a very old Logitec 600, 2 old servos and a BareBonesBoard Arduino.
