Travel by robot. That is awesome. However, if I were to create a robotic car, I wouldn't start with a Prius. Ferrari - that's a killer robot. No pun intended.
Gov. Jerry Brown showed up in Mountain View Tuesday morning in a driverless Prius and signed a bill allowing Californians to sit behind the wheel of a vehicle and allow an automated robotic system do all the work.

If you have any interest in robotics or embedded electronics; especially in microcontroller programming, you must check out this site. These guys have, by far, the most well-written, detailed, and thorough tutorials for the AVR microcontroller platform that I have been able to find. With both video and articulate written walk-throughs of several different types of projects, you will learn what you need to know to make awesome stuff!

Jesus lives - happy Easter!

I made my first AVR microcontroller project (look Ma, no Arduino!) this weekend. It's a digital temperature monitor. It senses the ambient temperature and displays it on an LCD screen.

It may not be much to look at, but trust me; it was a small feat to pull it off. I learned a lot from this project about the Atmega168/368, microcontrollers in general, and programming in C for embedded devices, especially binary operations. All in all, it was a lot of fun and only minimally frustrating!
