Ya .. not quite right - i do believe my spherical to real world coordinate system transformation is ... uh .. lacking in some way ...


Useful Kinect Info

It took too long surfing for this information, and its still scattered across the internet. 


Nixie with Presents

Everyone has made great progress on Nixie release.   The maven build, quick and stable dependencies, Yolo, DL4J,  100 of bug squashed.  I thought I'd add a good seasons gift too ..

Long overdue - searchable tabs.
Now, I won't go crazy searching through all those InMoov tabs (where the hell is rotHead ?) :)

ServoControllers vs Arduinos for InMoov

GroG's picture

Ahoy ! 

Locally I have changed all the references from Arduinos to ServoControllers in InMoov.  This was done because of the refactoring I did for the JMonkeyEngine service.  I think its the way InMoov should go anyway, and it has been a place of difficulty for builders who do not use Arduinos.

My question is - should I commit these changes now ?

This might mean :


Filter fixes ...

I added force feedback feature to my BLDC actuator.

For this first test, I use a 20kg load cell and HX11 amplifier connected to my arduino pro mini.

Back in February I back a Kickstarter campaign for what was described as a Single Board Computer with the heart of a Mac Book For the level I supported this set me back around the AU$500.  The campaign was successful, however production had a number of delays,  the result was Thursday 9th of Nov, I received a package containing my brand new Latte Panda Alpha.  Interestingly enough the site that was supposed to show tracking info when it was shipped still did not list that it had been shipped.
