Launchprog – Use the MSP430 Launchpad as AVR Programmer

There is an article on Mikrocontroller.net (english translation)which describes how to use the TI Launchpad as an AVR programmer (the included MSP430G221 is goog enough for that!). The firmware they offer for download allows one to program an AVR chip through the avrdude tool. Nice job I’d say.

SpokePOV Kit

Well – I don’t like those Arduinos too much … but that SpokePOV kit just rocks 🙂 Once mounted on the spokes of your cycle they display animated pictures on your wheels.


There is an other Wiki (germain only) dealing with building quadro copters. It offers some step-by-step instructions on how to build the electronic components for a QC, but leaves out how to build the frame. They us an ATmega328P as micro controller.
