Hey all. I've been signed up but this is my first post. Are there any members of the TCROBOTS group lurking about here ? I've got a few project I think would fit the group nicely. I just wanted t say hello and get my feet wet. I look forward to meeting up with some of you. Thanks...AF

I've been working on an optical trigger for motorcycle electronic ignition that's been on the back burner for ages. I'm a big arduino, wii, miniSSc, CNC guy. How's that ? I do a lot of two stroke motorcycle/scooter stuff. I love gearmotors/servo/stepper stuff. I built a few tube amps that never really got off the ground. I'm a starter...not a finisher. I have nice electric wheel chair... the newer kind with the joystick... I was thinking about a giant spray paint can etch-a-sketch with the two motors. I love Bruce Shapiros stuff.

These are all sweet too.... not my work... just really a big fan.

I'm a bit more practical originated as I would really like someone to develop some handyman helper Robotics.

The one I think about the most is a wall printer. Something that could both paint a wall and later lay down a painted wallpaper pattern or mural.

Or how about a set of wallboard helping hands. Something that takes the weight of the wallboard and responds to your positioning motions. Heck we could include a rotozip controller that would allow you to trim the edges and cut the holes for the boxes.

This could depending on costs be a fruitful and interesting challenge. The thing about construction/Handyman automation is that it is fuzzy. Dimensions are a bit fuzzy as the materials are not exactly stable. Wood has twists and bends, rooms are mostly square not exactly. But that is merely a challenge.
