Big Keith lives! Three sonar sensors, a camera on a dodgy Lego mount (until the PTU turns up). Four motors with encoders.

Bottom deck has the motor driver board. Middle deck has the master arduino at the front, and two ATMega328s on veroboard as the slaves driving the motors. Top board has a Raspberry Pi 2, batteries, and a small breadboard for prototyping.

The ultrasonics are read by the master, and are mounted onto an acrylic plate cut and drilled from an old CD case!

Thanks to everyone who supported To Kill a Machine! We are now funded! And we've also got the Arts Council matched funding we were hoping for!

Hello! This is my wife's play, which we need funding for to be able to take it on the road.  It's about the life of Alan Turing, and an earlier version toured a tiny bit in 2012. It's excellent. Much better than the Cumberbatch film. We've already got 9 bookings for a national tour (including London and the Edinburgh Fridge) but we need to pay everyone through the tour and rehearsal time, set design... Please help. And share.

Some of you may be aware that my wife, Catrin, has written a play about the life of Alan Turing called "To Kill a Machine". You may already have seen an earlier version of the play at Aberystwyth, Cardiff or Swansea.
Well, it's been redrafted and substantially revised, but we need your help to take it on tour - paying actors, designing sets and such. We've already got the tour bookings but we need £8000 to attract match funding from other sources. Please help!

Go to the site, read the comments. For one thing, this play is a damn sight more accurate than The Imitation Game. It's also a better piece of drama, by some way.
