I received some servo motors for Christmas, so naturally I need to start working on a robot. Details to come on the project, but for now I’ve been trying to figure out how to (a) control two servos with an ATTiny85 microcontroller and (b) talk to that microcontroller with an Arduino that is telling the ATTiny85 how to position the servos.
It took the better part of several days (including some learning and additional trips down rabbit holes, but here we go.
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. This year I opted for baking some cupcakes instead of cookies. Mocha peppermint with buttercream frosting and gingerbread with a dollop of cream cheese/whip cream frosting.
Recently, I performed an experiment. Together with one of my faculty colleagues, a pair of chemistry students, and the historian for the Western Monroe Historical Society (who also happens to be my wife), we dressed up in Victorian-style costumes and told a story.
