Childhood Dreams

Okie, the 5 days plan to finish the final year project kinda failed. HAHA

But things are going smooth with the programming and implementation. Got all the hardware to built it except a couple of things like some height sensor that has to be ordered all the way form UK. @.@ with that, I envy those who stay in US cause they have access to so many robotics specialty shops whereby here, I had to visit 10 shops to get one particular component. Erghz.

Nevertheless, this project has got me excited again about robotics. There's so many stuff I want to try out and with the advent of technology, it's so easy to play around with robotics at your own home.

I'm using this program called Protheus VSM whereby you have like 4000 over electronic parts which you can connect virtually in the computer. Then what's cool is that you can load up your program for the microchip and let the whole thing run.

So right before you, you can flip switches, see motors turn, view LCDs displayed and many more other stuff to manipulate.

At least I've somewhat achieved the dream of building a robot. I remembered when I was 7 years old I drew this robot on paper and wished so much to be able to build it.

Hence the irony sometimes, of how we spend so many of our adult years trying to fulfill dreams we had as children.
