9/19/20: This month's meeting had an online turnout of 25 people. The meeting was facilitated by Steve Kaehler. We met online.
The meeting was kicked off with a video Shape-Shifting Kirigami Balloon From Harvard Might Reshape Soft Robotics.
- We talked about the ongoing need for backup meeting leaders who can run things when Steve isn't available. There are a couple people who have done this but the more available folks the better. Contact Steve via SeattleRoboticsSociety(at)Gmail.com if you can help.
- The slides presented are provided here.
- Steve is looking for people interested in sending out emails to invite potential presenters to come talk to us. It currently takes about eights asks to get one accept. This means it could take a hundred speaker requests to fill the calendar for a whole year. He needs people willing to research potential presenters and then send them a customized template email addressed. He can provide the template and general instructions. Include the SeattleRoboticsSociety(at)Gmail.com address in the cc: line so he can see any responses and address them. It is time-consuming to find and contact so many people and help would be greatly appreciated, especially if we want to have a full schedule of presenters.
- We talked about the demise of Yahoo Groups on December 15 and encouraged member transition from SeattleRobotics@YahooGroups to SeattleRobotics@Groups.io. The Contact Us pages has been updated with information for joining and using this new list host.
- If you have ideas, comments, or presenter contact info, please email me at SeattleRoboticsSociety(at)Gmail.com.
The following people shared information/projects.
- Lloyd M. asked about repairing HP48GX display. Not feasible given the labor costs involved. Better to just use an emulator or buy one off eBay.
- Bob H. is looking for a 40-50 ft-lb torque DC motor. Suggestions: Actobotics/Servocity.
- Steve K. shared waking up a couple Arduino UNO robots with DC Motor Shields.
