Mail-E email checker

[Totoro] sent in this cool little email notification device he made. Using a paper model of Wall-E, he added some servos and connected it to his computer using a PIC. Mail-E has independent arm rotation and head rotation. He admits that the PIC processor is major overkill and plans some upgrades such as making it wireless and using a little better suited chip to control it. Not bad for a proof of concept.

    this is a hack.

    Why is this even here? Where’s the Arduino?

  5. abbott says:

    eh, Arduino’s are overrated. For one, they are already on their own board… a true hack (such as this one) should use a custom board or mabe breadboard.

    An overkill for a simple mail notifier.But a good job :)

    Crows are incredibly smart. They can be taught five things on the drop.
