Solarbotics goes "Hip"

Solarbotics has been on "the internets" for quite some time now. We've seen many websites come and go, but we've recently jumped feet-first into the cold, frigid water of this "social web 2.0 happy fun time" thing we keep hearing about. I mean, it's Web 2.0. That's, like, twice as much as Web 1.0. And even back then it wasn't referred to as "the web" so much as "THE INFORMATION SUPERHIGHWAY" (which, quite frankly, always sounded extremely lame). But this Web 2.0 seems to be pretty darn popular (don't forget the '.0' part - it's important to be exact with these things. There's a huge difference between 1.9 and 2.0 - it's all fun and games until someone loses a tenth of a digit). And in the never-ending pursuit of being "hip and happenin'" and "with it" we're trying our hand at some of the latest digital fads, like...

  • Youtube. Ah yes, the internet's bottomless supply of cat clips and video blogs. We've started our own Solarbotics Channel and will be filling it up with all sorts of videos for our kits, products, and happy fun times around the office.  It's pretty barren at the moment, but stay tuned while we post some more content in the coming weeks.
  • Twitter. Yup, Dave (our fearless leader) has signed up for an account just a few weeks ago. The micro-blogging service, that has less characters than a daytime soap opera, is a pretty big hit at the moment. Lots of our pals from Sparkfun, Parallax, Pololu, Adafruit and Make are already onboard. You can find our brand-spanking new feed right here, detailing a few aspects of life around the company.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to make a few image macros, start a new meme or two, and post some "LOLOLOLOLOLOL" comments in random locations.

Sumovore code online

Hey!?! Didja know we didn't have a link to the BS2 code for the Sumovore BS2 add-on board? Well, we did, but it was on the news posting, not the BS2 adapter board page (it does now!). Grant did a great job setting up framework for a great dual-purpose BS2-controlled Sumovore. Set it down on […]

New Atmel Brainboard

Hi all! We've got a new revision of the Atmel Brainboard ready for you. It adds some more functionality, and removes the breadboard space to make it cleaner (but can be added back on via the expansion bus - will be announced shortly). Check it out!

BEP Application #4 - The BBPV

We've churned out another Bicore Experimenter's PCB project: The "Bare Bones PhotoVore". This is an elegant little circuit, which offers the functionality of a basic photovore (with tactiles) all on a very simple circuit. Ours is solar-powered by a Miller Solarengine, but if you wanted to build one with a battery, your parts count would […]
