General Discussion / Tiny servos?
« on: October 18, 2013, 04:29:33 PM »
I was hoping to find some suggestions for tiny servos to use with a miniature mechatronics project that I want to attempt (will be controlled by a TinyDuino).

Is anyone aware of ultra-tiny servos, or perhaps might have other ideas for miniature robotics? They don't need to be all that powerful.

TinyDuino / FTDI driver causing crash?
« on: June 09, 2013, 10:17:46 PM »
Just wondering if anyone else has seen this or if it was an isolated incident...

I was messing around with my TinyDuino, just toying with a few simple sketches and the led board. Everything worked fine until I unplugged it from the USB cable, which triggered an instant kernel panic / system crash in OS X. The FTDI driver was right at the top of the crash report when I restarted.

I had been playing with my TinyLily too prior to this (which uses same driver and same settings), and didn't have any trouble upon disconnecting that one. I've also been doing a fair amount of tinkering with both my Arduino as well as my Mojo FPGA with no stability problems.

Is this maybe just a rare bug in the FTDI driver? If it is semi-common then I will need to be more careful about when I tinker with these boards so I don't lose any real work when it takes down my other software.

New Product Ideas / Camera shield
« on: October 25, 2012, 03:48:00 AM »
Natural color and/or IR camera shields. There are some really interesting and cheap tiny cameras on sparkfun that appear to be small enough to easily work in TinyDuino projects. Possibly even some TinyLily projects as well.

I can think of many uses for such a shield, such as surveillance applications and vision processing experiments.
