Our recent ShareOut here at Pelotech covered a lot of ground. Even though there's a lot to take in, Bryce has done an excellent job of breaking apart the various elements and features of the tooling to describe all of the moving parts. Check out the video. If you're interested, please give Bryce a follow @_bcovert_ and Pelotech @Pelotechnology, and feel free to strike up conversation or ask questions about the talk.
Here is the video from the Share-Out last week talk by Rob Eickmann (@roberte3). Rob goes into some of the history and details of animatronics, the ideas for use, automation code, and then delves into a demo with his own box robot. As Rob put it, “How to take $30 worth of technology and make cool toys out your mailing boxes.”. Rob demonstrates Arduino powered robots, that are made from simple fasteners and Amazon Boxes, with simple steps for how to make them. This is a realm of technology Rob’s diving into lately, learning more everyday, and he’s got some aspirations of Robot domination world over! We are after all building Skynet, so Rob’s handling the robots!
Here at Peloton Tech.IO we meet weekly to discuss tech, coding practices, tips, tricks, and all sorts of things. Generally it’s an open session of conversations, good friends, and maybe a round of drinks. We’ve decided it is indeed great to have this level of comraderie among ourselves, but we’d really like to share what we know with the community.
We made the original weekly meetups open to the pubic, and that worked fairly well, however the weekly pace gets to be hectic. After having the weekly meets among the team for a while we decided to move toward a monthly meetup. Besides this change, we’ve also opened up a Meetup.com meetup “Peloton Tech.IO Share-Out”. Please join us on meetup and take a look around.
