    Hello Everyone,

    My engineering capstone group just made a new YouTube channel called ModuPong and have a new video with our robot. Please check it out and share it with friends and family!

    Link to our latest video: http://youtu.be/ObAUpV91PTg

    We will be placing new videos on the ModuPong channel in the upcoming weeks.

    Email me with any questions or ideas.

    Take care!

    Maybe we should pair up Robot with my ping-pong ball launcher & have a match. Semi finished project with intent to use an acoustically split table so that a ball strike would trigger a launch.

    I am open to collaboration with others. Can you post pictures of your project? It sounds pretty interesting!

    Found some pictures. Up- Down is manual, side to side 30 deg by 4 RPM motor, not shown. Solenoid injects a ball between wheels on command from ball strike or a timer. Speed on one motor fixed, other random PWM, Power supplies & controls were diverted to other projects. My friend with table became involver with BMW restoration, so project is on long term hold.

    Very cool project! I would love to see it in action. It is unfortunate that work on it has been put on hold. Thanks for sharing!
