Truthinker: can one have retard strength in the way of denial of reality?
WalterAnthos: Are we having issues coexisting at this juncture? You might consider utilizing standard conflict resolution strategies to deter this escalating conflict.
"I would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers, on this special date, September 11th," Trump tweeted on Sept. 11, 2013.
chatonator i calculated how many bowls of fruity pebbles it would take to power the rockets in the space shuttle for 1 second

cx3: Boston Dynamics has new robot, "Stretch". I actually think they did a decent job. I started typing a long paragraph about all it's obvious flaws but I don't want to be negative ALL the time. It has good qualities. Weighing 25% less than other robot arms that size, having the ability to contract into a compact form, having a base it can use to stabilize without having to be bolted into the floor like other arms, and the way it can stretch is refreshing. It's just efficient that it can reach far without having to move its whole base to do it.
cx3: Got servo control over server with arduino esp32 wirelessly... AKA I can control robot in my house from anywhere.. but still waiting on 3D printer. Theyre cheap now I want the prusa mini but the creality ender 3 v2 will do
cx3: I've been busy.
Got a multiple servo setup working. 4 power sources working! (9V 1.67A, 5V 2.4 A, 9V 1.5A, 6V 0.3A, 5V 2A) (5 if you count external usb charger!). I got Multiple DC motors working off a single UNO R3. I got a stepper motor working. Still need to get: Metal servos working and independently powered, Larger DC motors working, and a more direct connection between the mouse and correlated servo responses. If I get a 3D printer I think I might have enough to make something pretty dang cool and practical. I'm thinking novel quadruped setups, Mecano wheels, 40:1 wench gears powered by medium sized DC motors... I wonder if my power bill will go up some. 4:43 AM. Been awake for a while now. Need to get some homework progress made tomorrow. Still want a few continous-rotation servos and NEMA 23 stepper motors and something.. something.. YAWN.. some aluminum guided rails.. YAWN. PCA9685 16 Channel 12 Bit PWM Servo Motor Driver IIC Module will be delivered today. Amazon is stupid-fast and stupid-cheap.

boredinmo: It's legit. What's with it being in black and white though? Another question, have you gotten it down where you can separate each item out by a proper hull instead of rectangles? Awesome job man. K-means is a cool thing. I'd love to hear from you and how you've been doing.
cx3: Hey I can't really remember why black and white.. maybe get the framerate up or something that made sense at the time. I've seen the word K-means a number of times and know it has something to do with computer vision math. I never got "static" nor real-time MASK RCNN working with the hull outline! That would then allow for semantic interpretation of things and so on but I'm not really pursuing anything with CV right now. It's super neat and practical but my fundamental coding skills and project management and everything are what I should really work on and then I can come back to robotics and CV when I'm more mature. Hardware is hard! YouTube watching this guy and how efficiently he can make things makes me want to get an education. Taking Java and "Object Oriented Programming" starting in Feb.
