Laptop controlled blimp

Posted in Hardware at 3:26 pm by Tessa

Today, we made it possible to control Zeppy with our laptop instead of the remote. To be able to do this, we had to mutilate the remote and solder the poor thing to a brand new relais board we bought for this purpose. This relais board could be connected to the laptop with usb. Now Zeppy flies on the instructions of simple keyboard pressings!

    Laptops are common now; everyone’s these to decide on school or when they travel for work. They’re useful and to maneuver with. What on earth is also common should be to see someone scrambling to discover a place to charge a laptop battery. That report due tomorrow may suddenly be lost if you don’t find an outlet within thirty seconds… Or that slideshow you could have created (but carelessly forgot just to save) may disappear should your laptop battery is just not recharged.,;`-
