Todays sugru hacks

I often use a set of helping hands to grip a piece while I'm working on it but my set have always been a bit wobbly.  Not anymore, with their new Sugru feet!

I love my Blackrapid camera strap but the mount has one annoying flaw.  By mounting to the tripod socket it's impossible to put the camera down on a flat surface without scratching it.  Easily fixed with a little Sugru left over from the above hack.

I'm a big fan of Sugru.  Historically, silicone rubbers have been hard to work with and generally out of reach of makers.  Sugru changes all that.

ArduRoller back in business

ArduRoller is balancing again. Turned out to be a loose connection between my Arduino and Motor shield. Pushing it back together did the trick.

So, I was trying to get my remote control working and ArduRoller crashed. Now it won't balance even with old code so something must've shorted or been damaged. Damn!
