A series of interactive Chrome Experiments made by Google
Weblab is announced at Google I/O Con which is one among many other amazing products, such as Android Jelly Bean and who can forget the Live Sky Diver’s hangout with the Google Glass.
Google Chrome launched the Web Lab at the London Science Museum, a year-long installation of five interactive experiments designed to tie the Internet’s otherworldly conceptual presence to something physical. Users can access the experiments while physically at the Science Museum or, and this is key to the installation’s concept, from wherever they are in the world via the Internet.
The experiments include a Universal Orchestra, Data Tracer, Lab Tag explorer, Sketch-bots, Teleporter.
The Sketch Bot experiment awesome’ness is that it right opens in your favorite browser (ofcourse all experiments do, Thanks to latest tech HTML5) it captures the image using webcam of your machine and applies a series of Basic Powerful Image Processing Algorithms.
The very first thing is it detects eye’s and subsequently Read More »
Human Controlled Robotic hand Using Gesture Recognition
Robotic Hand v2.0
Made the robotic hand more complex than previous one.
This time individual fingers actuation by five servos for five fingers.
Controlled by Glove with 5 Flex sensors from Sparkfun USA and 3-axis analog accelerometer with Atmega32 programmed by Arduino
Actuated by 7 servos with an ssc-32 from Lynxmotion taking commands through serial transfer from atmega32 (glove)
I feel sorry for having no recorded video in action only some images :p

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,800 times in 2010. That’s about 4 full 747s.
In 2010, there were 12 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 21 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 7mb. That’s about 2 pictures per month.
The busiest day of the year was October 18th with 412 views. The most popular post that day was Robotic Hand using Gesture Recognition.
Where did they come from?
The top referring sites in 2010 were hackaday.com, facebook.com, arduino.cc, orkut.co.in, and en.wordpress.com.
Some visitors came searching, mostly for ball tracking robot, ball tracker robot, sinple avr serial programmer, atmega16 simple serial, and serial programmer.

ATMEGA Serial Programmer’s Circuit (Hardware) January 2010
Today saw the movies Short Circuit and Short Circuit-2
Its feeling ‘Alive’ by watching Johnny 5’s Action, his dialogues, his innocence
Ben Jahrvi character is cool with his really fuzzy Indian English and he speaks some Hindi words too in Short Circuit 2
The main line of Short Circuit is some what used by Shankar’s Robo.
The coolest thing is Most of the arm movements of Johnny 5 were controlled by a “telemetry suit,” a metallic skeleton carried on the puppeteer’s upper torso. Each joint in the suit had a separate sensor, allowing the puppeteer’s arm and hand movements to be transferred directly to the machine like my Robo hand and Robo Hand V2.0 (done long time ago but did n’t post it till nw)
Read That is Short Circuit is being remake with different plot is set to release in 2011
Johnny 5 and Ben’s accent is unforgettable
Hey Lynxmotion is selling Johnny 5 look alike robots with same brand name
Microsoft Kinect is released just this week and it is hacked for us.
jus like the Nintendo WII is ..!! which has been a part many diy projects and robotics
This guy Hector Martin http://git.marcansoft.com/?p=libfreenect.git
hacked kinect to capture data to custom platform (with in 3hrs after purchase of kinect from store -he says this in his video)..so no need of Xbox
this can be now be used for DIY, robotics, art, science, education and more. For $150 it’s loaded with tons of great sensors and cameras – now it’s unlocked for creativity.
Adafruit industries had posted this challenge to hack kinect
Remeber AMP Suit from AVATAR
Human Controlled Robotic Hand Using Gesture Recognition
Inspired from AVATAR Amp Suit.
Right i had done only hand wrist..
it has 3 DOF wrist roll and pitch, fingers lock and release.
I liked Arduino Software for coding..
tried but could n’t put time and failed to modify the software for atmega 16/32
So took an atmega8 and made my Pavduino (arduino Board)
one more pic
if u want one ..make one for urself..
complete schematics and projects can be found at www.arduino.cc
one last thing ..pls lemme know if any of u use arduino software for coding atmega 16/32..
i found the way to program atmega32 from Arduino IDE
SENSOR: Linear + 10.0 mV/°C scale factor
ADC Resolution 10bit (1024)
reference voltage 5V
=> 5/1024 = 5mV approx
As ADC results are in factor of 5mV and for 1 degree C the output of LM35 is 10mV, So 2 units of ADC = 1 degree
So to get the temperature
temperature = adc_value/2
