So I’m placing a lot of my projects on hold, including the robotic hand. I’m learning a ton of great things here at UCLA. Don’t fret, technology is a dark and twisted mistress. I will be back and working on my side projects when I can find the spare time. 🙂
Playing around with the Speakjet Speech Synthesis chip. Fun times!
Here is my first attempt at a robotic hand frame. I learned a lot creating this version and a redesign will definitely need to be made. Problems were found and will be addressed in Prototype-2. Enjoy the video.
Robotics with the arm, need I say more?
I will post more as the project progresses. Enjoy! 🙂
Is Windows 7 launch set to reveal ARM processor support?
But now Warren East, president and CEO of ARM Holdings plc (Cambridge, England) has been dropping hints about Microsoft Windows and ARM while concluding that he, of course, could not possibly comment.
…Based on the ARM Cortex A8-based Beagle board, it features a 4.3-inch (480 x 272) display, Bluetooth, support for OpenGL ES 2.0, S-Video and HDMI outputs, USB, SD / MMC, RS-232, and audio in / out connections. As controls go, this thing sports not only a touchscreen, but a five position joystick, three position slider, and plenty of buttons as well…
Nokia, Linux, and ARM, oh my!:
Nokia is hinting that it may further crowd the already-packed netbook space by becoming the first phone maker to jump in. If the Finnish maker of stylish smartphones does make a netbook, it could differentiate itself and make a splash by using ARM and mobile Linux.

NVIDIA has announced a $99 hardware platform for MIDs centered around its Tegra 600 series chip, which pairs a small GeForce GPU with an ARM11 core on the same die. Meanwhile, ARM has been talking up the quad-core version of its upcoming Cortex A9 chip, but there’s no guarantee that ARM can make it work with four cores.
ARM is demonstrating the first working example of a multicore processor that may dramatically speed up smartphones. Meanwhile, Apple is looking for iPhone engineers that can write multithreaded code that may take advantage of ARM’s breakthrough.
