Kin interview

What else will be done? Kin plans to make a second version of his motion flight simulator. His second version will vary from the first in that it will have a 7 axis motion platform instead of the current 4. The current design only has 4 axis of freedom, one controlling the up and down movement, one for tilt, one for roll, and the bottom for the rotation. With the second design, it will include 3 new axis of freedom, a horizontal axis of freedom controlling left to right motion, one for the side to side movement, full degree of angle acceleration. The current also has a maximum tilt degree of 30 degrees. The new design has a maximum platform degree of over 60 degrees but for safety reasons, it will be capped at 60. This 7 axis motion platform will make the motion flight simulator more realistic. This new design is revolutionary because no one has incorporated all these components before. Version two will take approximately 4 months and Kin hopes it will be finished in November of 2016. He plans to have a workshop when finished and if people are interested, Kin would like to show have a “How to build a helicopter simulator” workshop but only if a lot of people are interested. After the completion of his version two, he will build a version 3 of his motion flight simulator which will take about 8 months after version two to complete. Kin expects it to be available around July of 2017. After version 3 and using the same concept and structural designs, Kin plans on building a robotic arm that can move as much as the human arm, up and down, rotating in every angle, and being able to push, pull, and lift. It will be able to go up and down while it rotates and up and down while it pushes. It can also stretch out and recompress. The most important quality of the robotic arm is that it will be able to lift a lot of weight. With the design that he has in mind, Kin expects the robotic arm to weigh about 60 kg, and stand about 400 mm. It should lift at least 40 kg and have 45 degrees of freedom on either side. The meaning of this application is that you can build very high precision applications with the robotic arm. Conventional robotic arm has all its connections on a gear box. The limit of the gear box, is very obvious and requires a lot of torque which is one downside. It is very difficult to give it precision when lifting heavy weights with conventional robotic arms Kin’s design takes that into consideration and is able to bypass the limit allowing his robotic arm to move and life very precisely. Kin has taught not only himself but 8 other students how to fly a helicopter with his simulation. They all have learned how to fly with 9 hours of land instructions, 1 hour on the flight simulator and 10 minutes with real helicopter flight. Kin still has many ideas and a lot more projects that he want to do in the future. He is a very resourceful and ambitious person. He seeks out knowledge by watching videos and going on Tao Bao and getting tips from the merchants on what parts to use and how to use it. He is very excited about the possibilities and applications of his innovations and hopes to help share his dream of flying to all those around him.]]>

Design your own Printed Circuit Board August 7

上海静安愚园东路28号3号楼一楼 新车间屏幕快照 2016-08-01 下午3.40.37 报名参加 Sign Up What’s a PCB? – it’s that thing inside all electronics that does all the electrical stuff. There comes a time in life where you want to make some complex projects tiny or customized or of a certain quality. The workshop will be run in English only and last about 4 hours through a structured flow. When? – August 7th, Sunday, 9:30 – 12:30 How much will it cost me? – How much are you willing to pay for a new skill? Remember, it’s an introduction – 450rmb if you’re a member, 550rmb if you’re not and you become a member for a month. I’m a newbie, should I do it? – Totally, its designed as a follow along program I’m not a newbie, should I do it? – Totally, if you’ve never done it before I’m a parent, can my child do it? – Totally, but you are expected to be there with your child and address any behavioral issues, if it cannot be, the risk is we ask you both to leave. The following topics will be covered: · Introduction to Eagle, file organization – 15minutes · Setup your first board, DRC and ERC – 10 minutes · Learn the interface and as many shortcuts as you can remember · Create your first Schema (reference provided) – 30 minutes · Create your first library using a reference sheet – 30 minutes · Layout your first board like playing Tetris! – 30 minutes · Route the traces both: manually and automatically – 30 minutes · Tips & Tricks – 15 minutes · Prepare files to send off for manufacturing (dirtypcbs) – 15 minutes We’ll adjust the timing according to the process of the attendees. What you need to do before arriving: 1. Install eagle from Cadsoft: Mac/Windows/Linux – 2. If you can open the software! register and pay so we know how many are coming. 3. Bring your computer with you on the day Challenges? – You will be challenged in both design and physical size! – there is a competition for this. What are we making again? – We’re going to be referencing the Annoying ATtiny85 circuit, a tiny little device you can stick anywhere around someone to annoy them over the course of a year on a single battery. What about a Follow on workshop? – Great idea, why don’t we send off one PCB to manufacture and make them 2 weeks later. ]]>
