Homemade digital compass

Some time ago OddBot posted this circuit for a homemade digital compass based on hall effect sensors:

Compass_Schematic.jpg

Unfortunately CircuitBurn couldn't make it work. However I'm inclined to try again. A cheap DIY compass would be great.

So if anyone has ANY idea as to how this could be achieved let's hear it. It could be an improvement on OddBot's circuits or something completely different and wacky :D

Homemade wheel encoder

Basically I just printed out one of these (laser printer recommended):

...And attached it to a wheel (double sided tape recommended).

Then I hooked up one of these (a 2$ IR sensor: QRB1134):

...And attached it to the motor pointing towards the wheel.

Explore an environment, create maps, take pictures, never get stuck.

DIY CNC router project

04/06 Update

Motors and driver chips arrived in a package with some stuff for other projects today. Can`t find much information about the motors online and they have some marks on the body but they should work great. I`ll breadboard a circuit up to test the motors later.

Amazing homebuilt quadruped

Searching for robot videos on youtube I came across this japanese guys profile. The quadruped in the video has a really interesting leg structure, not to mention the extra drive wheels. Check out the videos, it just looks and moves amazing!
