New Forum

Hello All,

I decided to try and replace the forum as there was no notification of new posts and reply's to threads which made things very difficult. I was able to find a forum which integrates with Facebook so it should be very easy to keep up to date on new threads and posts.

You'll find the new forum here

Or alternatively on Facebook here, don't forget to hit the like button and spread the word.

Just to remind everyone that the forum doesn't give an automatic response when you get a reply so keep an eye on the forum to see if you've got a reply!!

A few electronic components for sale!

Posted by ozirock on August 21, 2010 at 7:49 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello All,

I'm heading back to uni soon so I taught it wouldn't be a terrible idea to try and sell a few components since I usually by them in bulk to save on the shipping.

I have quite a collection of resistors, leds, transistors and other small things like that so if your looking for some components it may be cheaper to get them through me and then you don't have to buy in bulk yourself thus making it cheaper.

The shipping cost is €2.30 for Ireland and €2.80 to everywhere else for a small package.

So if your working on a project and need a few parts let me know and I'll see if I can help at all.

Hopefully this will help some of you guys as well as myself.



New App on Webs

Posted by ozirock on August 18, 2010 at 3:53 PM Comments comments (0)

Hello All,

I've just added a new webs app which links us with a company called CafePress, we're able to design some t-shirts and that. Does anyone have any ideas for logos?

I'll try make as many as I'm allowed, not sure what the limit is, thanks for the help :)

You can see the few designs here.

What I'm working on at the minute

Hello all,

I have finally got a chance to look at the Bioloid beginner kit and I'm currently working through a number of tutorials related to the kit. I will be uploading videos of the different creations both mine and the samples as soon as I can. 

I also hope to get back to my plan for a PIC controlled robot, still need to do a good bit of work on this one yet but I'll keep you up to date.

Plans for webstore

I have plans to create a store on Ozirocks Projects, it will have a number of useful components for your robotics projects including a preprogrammed PIC which will have a line follower mode and a obstacle avoidance mode. You will be able to quickly make a cheap robot for possibly under ten euro using this pic, some LEDs, LDRs and a few other inexpensive components.
