I updated my installer-script for the Parallax Propeller tool-chain (GCC, SPIN, BST and others) to make it work (agin) on Ubuntu 14.04. Main issue was that the current “makeinfo” seems not to be happy with some of the “.texi” files from “binutils” used by the Propeller GCC. Thus, I added a patch to the script […]
I decided to slightly change plans for the tin can robot. Since I bought a 3D printer lately, it now totally makes sense to print out all the additional parts around the can (instead of poorly handcraft them from whatever). Thus, I started designing all stuff I like to print within OpenSCAD. Below you could […]
I roughly put together most of the electronic parts needed to make the robot drive. The video shows operation of the two motors through my cellphone using Bluetooth. Also I added basic playback of PCM audio files through a speaker I connected to the Propeller. The audio is a must to play back the typical […]
Since R2D2 from StarWars is very popular with my kids these days, I started working on a tin can robot which looks something like R2D2 and is remote controllable through a Android device (cell phone, tablet, ..). The body is made from a can which originally was for coffee. As you can see in the […]
My little installer script for helping setting up a Propeller Tool-chain on Linux/ARM, also mentioned on hackaday last month, was chosen for “project of the week” from Parallax (the makers of the Propeller).
My article about the installer script for a Propeller Toolchain on Linux/ARM made it to hackaday.com.
Lately I started playing around with the Parallax Propeller Quick Start Board. Since I found it a little hard to puzzle together a Linux tool-chain supporting C/C++ and SPIN development for Propeller on Intel based as well as on ARM based machines, I wrote a little installer script which helps in setting up a tool-chain […]
