Thread: servo controller

    servo controller

    I need help with a small project. Im looking for a servo controller for 4 servos that is programable through you pc but i want to run the routine when im finnished without having to use the computer. Maybe theres a board that just has a button or a switch to run it when its programed.


    Thanks for any help!

    For that, I would recommend the Parallax Board of Education:
    http://www.trossenrobotics.com/paral...stamp-kit.aspx

    It's programmable, and it has four built-in servo channels. If you want it to execute a routine when it's powered on or when it receives input from a switch, it can be programmed to do so.

    Re: servo controller

    Thanks for the links hotrodled.

    That puzzle box is sick! I always wanted to build one of those when I was younger. Just scared that I might open up the gates of hell with it Hellraiser was a great run of movies.

    Hey! I just Googled "Hellraiser" and found that they're putting out a remake of the original:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0887261/


    Anyways, thanks for the link to your YouTube videos. Does that computer actually work? That is one freakin amazing beast of a machine! What sort of specs do you have? Do you happen to have any longer videos really showing it off?

    For everyone's enjoyment:

    Man, it's hard to believe this is a freakin computer!




    Have you won any awards with this? Even with the older specs, it's still faster than my computer at home, haha! Man, I need an upgrade

    Those wallpapers are pretty cool too!
