Check out these Cool ALAVs (Autonomous Light Vessels) by Jed Berk! Tight! It uses Sun Microsystems SunSpot microcontroller, which can be programmed in Java. I like this idea since there’s a lot of Java embedded processors out there but this ones from the creators. Jed tells me that all the pieces were 3D designed on the computer and laser-cut, kinda cool~ 🙂
Jed says, Make Store will have these cool DIY ALAV kits soon!
Internet is kinda slow here at the Maker Faire. (That’s why our posts are slow too.) We even switched to a Sprint Broadband but with live video streaming, it’s still too slow but we will keep postin’~
You can come and join us to chat here to while watching our live video.
You can also check out our Flickr photos from Maker Faire Day 1 and Jed’s Flickr for more ALAVs.
