The International Humanoid Robotics Exposition went
well and so did the software and hardware interfaces. So
far, the HIS Humanoid International Study has extended to
the USA, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China. I'm looking
forward to additional travel to new countries to continue
WIN XP is now handling at least one humanoid platform for
programming and motion control. One humanoid was down with
an ankle problem requiring some maintenance which went
smoothly. Due to a high volume of use, this humanoid has had
approximately 12 mechanical repairs involving arms, legs,
ankles, and shoulders.
At least 35 projects are all going on at the same time to
accelerate the accomplishments per unit time. However, not
all projects are updated in the projects section. I'll try
to get to this in time. Some of the newer projects are
hardware related. At this time the majority of the projects
involve extensive software.
Some thought is being placed into the concept of a book to
document the rapid development of humanoid inventions. I
will need much of my laboratory equipment and will have to
pick that up during another trip to the laboratory which may
happen later this year.
Some time was spent on a new invention for the observatory,
i.e. a new kind of telescope. Additional time was spent on
the world's famous remote robotic telescope. I hope to have
some clear weather after the rainy season passes to get some
clear proof of concept images through the scope. A third
invention was designed which directly involves accelerating
the capabilities of Otis Observatory and establishing its
perimeter to new countries.
Some work was aimed towards developing a safety device for
world wide use. In addition to a hardware product, a virtual
product is in the design that encompasses the humanoid
robot. It will be interesting to measure the results once
the VR programming is completed.
A small amount of time was spent studying a computer cam and
examining the potential range in imaging applications.
Another study was imaging software related to gain numerous
functions for vision and clarity. A lens study was completed
that compared various EFLs using several virtual oculars.
This went excellent, and the gain, in addition to optical,
produced some exquisite results, worthy of paper publication.
