HyundaiKitCoupe  : (24 June 2017 - 01:38 AM) I'ver never played Earthbound. Have you ever played Link's Awakening for the gameboy? Easily the best Zelda next to Ocarina.

i8acobra  : (23 June 2017 - 07:50 PM) I miss my Sega CD.
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (23 June 2017 - 07:07 PM) Sega Saturn and Jaguar were deemed failures and tried desperately to sell at KB Toys. Need For Speed came out. I bougtht Goldeneye 64 for $72.99 I remember and got a dossier promo with it. Thing's worth $100.00 right now.
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (23 June 2017 - 07:05 PM) I miss those ads. Good times no more.
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (23 June 2017 - 07:05 PM) https://s-media-cach...aabe86f39db.jpg That was mid 90's then, but I rmember it being $199.00
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (23 June 2017 - 07:03 PM) That was a piece of Nintendo/Rare history.
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (23 June 2017 - 07:03 PM) I have Killer Instinct I bought off ebay. Boxed. H-seam. Perfect condition. 2 of them actually.
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (23 June 2017 - 07:02 PM) Mortal Kombat was great too.
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (23 June 2017 - 07:02 PM) That's friggin' awesome. My favorite game was The Lost Vikings. I remember going to Toys R' Us, seeing the SNES kiosk with DKC and thinking that was like being in heaven. We couldn't afford jack sh** and there had never been games before unlike today's times. Keep it to show your kids!
faithofadragon  : (23 June 2017 - 06:52 PM) i have emulators for everything but still have my snes
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (23 June 2017 - 06:52 PM) I still have my Atari 2600, my SNES, and my Genesis. Good times.
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (23 June 2017 - 06:52 PM) https://www.youtube....h?v=kAbL8NjoRhI Ahhhhh simpler times............
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (23 June 2017 - 06:51 PM) No no man. I mean, ugly. Like Uncle Fester ugly, but worse because Uncle Fester looks good next to this guy. I should write a book.

Adam Outler's Hackaday Santa-Pede competition entry

Icon Leave Comment
Back in December, there was a BBB contest (Buy, Break, Build) which was hosted on hackaday.com. It sparked my interest and I waited to see results, but there were none. There were no entires in the contest. So, on the second go-around, I decided to enter in all three categories of the contest. WIth the SantaPede competition challenge ending soon, I decided to make a blog entry about it.


Here is my build/demonstration of capabilities video for entry in all three categories... Best Result, Best Presentaion and Most Overkill.



---Santa's Code---
I created an SVN repository on google code for this project to be in the public domain. It is GPLV3 which means go ahead and use it. The directory structures are in tact so you can download and copy to your root folder if you wish to reproduce. http://code.google.c...kadaysantapede/ Here are some links to the source code

---Microprocessor Code---
Arduino Code: http://code.google.c...ons_project.pde
An Arduino ATMega1280 board runs the santa. This is the code which runs on the board.
---Web server code---
Permissions script: http://code.google.c...ript/startSanta
The shell script changes permsisions of the USB Serial device for use with the web server. It also forces the computer to keep the terminal open for communications as a serial device
Web interface: http://code.google.c.../www/index.html
The web interface provides the user a interface for button-pressing actions
command CGI: http://code.google.c.../cgi-bin/cmd.sh
The command script sends a command to santa and then returns the user interface back to the web page
Login CGI: http://code.google.c.../SantaLogin.cgi
The login script is a bit different then the command script as it sends two commands, both the username and the password to santa.

here is some of the stuff on-screen in the video which you could not see.
sOS 1.0
Login:Santa
Password:Ho

Welcome to Santa OS Mother f*cker
Status: Online
System runtime: 11Seconds 

Commands:
help 	- displays a helpful message
walk 	- tells Santa to walk
shoot	- shoot guns
rocket   - fires rockets
stop 	- stops all actions

rampage - go into hardcore mode
Unrecognized command

Walking..
firing
>rocket
Stopping...
Rampage



I disassembled the motor mechanism more then 10 times to get things just right. It took around-about 40 hours to figure out the perfect configuration and get the bends just right. Also, about 30 hours to write the software which drives Santa. It was a learning experience since I am not a web designer. Even with the difficulties, it was a fun project.
