Recommendation Engine

I have been laid up this winter and have been working from home the past several months.  Idle hands ARE the devil's work so I decided to take on a machine learning challenge at CodeProject.com and build a recommendation engine like Amazon, Facebook etc.  These are interesting pieces of software that in commercial sites can work in conjunction with search engines to lead customers to content, products or items they might never would have looked at otherwise.  In fact, this is something that might be useful on LMR - maybe have a recommendations window for when a user logs in?&

Looking for ideas on a I2C Pan/tilt stand-alone sonar

This quest to build a stand-alone I2C pan/tilt range finder controller started with an article here by Ladvien.  In    https://www.robotshop.com/letsmakerobots/node/39130, Ladvien explores using an ATtiny85 (84) as an I2C motor controller...

And in https://www.robotshop.com/letsmakerobots/node/39222,   Chris the Carpenter   gives us an awesome pan and tilt code example... so...

It all started one day when I was working on my old CNC engraver last summer at my makerspace. Someone went up to me and said "You should work on this CNC. You have … Read more
