Re: How to... newb

I had pretty good luck with the little screwdriver included with standard eye glasses repair kits. Most of the stores around our area have them and they're fairly inexpensive. Having some good narrow tweezers is a big help as well. They are kid of expensive for tweezers, but I'm a big fan of the Twe...

Re: broken motor

Hello Lewisgard, I recall seeing an email about this a few days back - I'm pretty sure I responded. Are you in the USA? If so you can send it to us for repair, otherwise I can help direct to you a replacement motor. Usually they're pretty solid - must have landed just right. We'll help you get it ta...

Re: New Wink - Base Sketch Error

Hello chenhao, That does sound strange. I've sent you an email - can you reply to that email and include a zipped copy of the sketch folder (the folder including the sketch and supporting files)? I'll have a look here and see if I can get to the bottom of it. It's been a while since I looked at that...

Re: Help! How to get correct GetPositionY()?

I wanted to add a few more notes on this... this is a paste of a response I just sent to a user via email that discusses this. You are correct that slight tilt differences will be seen as movement because the accelerometer is picking up the acceleration of gravity which of course is a constant 1G st...

Re: Help! How to get correct GetPositionY()?

I've always been a bit confused about the low level details of the navigation functions. They were written by a friend a while back. I'm hoping to be able to go over them in detail soon as we'll be using the same code on the new Spirit rover. If you can send me some actual code examples I'll try to ...

Re: Hardware files

Hello Brooke,

I've been behind on getting out the hardware files for sure. Been crazy busy. I posted Plumduino drawings and schematics on github this morning.

Here's the link:

Wink/Ringo on MacOS Sierra

Hey all. I wanted to pass along some feedback I received from someone using Mac OS Sierra. Apparently the FTDI driver (the driver for the programming adapter) isn't required on Sierra, and installing the driver may cause the port to not show up. He was able to verify the programmer is plug and play ...

Re: Wink in the Classroom

Hello Mr Pengilley, Thanks for the post and good question. I'm always interested to hear feedback as well. It won't help in the short term but our Wink 2 units will be available in the next few weeks that move the programmer hardware onto the robot itself and eliminates the ribbon cable - now just a...
