I visited RS Components
I was at the headquater of the German section of RS Components in Mörfelden-Walldorf. During the hours of my visit I was pushed into a universe called "Social Media" and that is more or less an onknown space to me. The video report from beyond that new frontier will follow by RS components as soon as all the raw material is edited by their social media experts. I am curious about the result.
The reason for my trip is a project made with parts from my sponsor that I am currently working on. It will be displayed at the SPS IPC Drives 2017 in Nürnberg, Germanyfrom November 28 to 30, 2017 at the stand of RS Components. I will be there and I am looking forward to talk with technicians and creators. Thursday is a special day for students.
Before driving home I could put a box of Raspberry Pis into the boot of my 2CV estate special edition and you know my slogan: A Raspberry a day keeps boredom away!

Review of the Anet E10 3D printer
The Anet E10 is another 3D printer I got for a review. The test wasn't free of trouble, but to my mind problems are no reason to start whining, they only need a soulution ...

Test drive R6
The batteries of R6 are recharged and another public test will start at 10:00 CEST (UTC +2) lasting for the whole day. During this test run I will continue optimizing the picture stream. With that I'll try to reduce the traffic generated by the rover to get a continuous stream even in areas with low Internet bandwidth. Besides various resolutions, the color might also fade away whenever the rover transmits grey scale images, such as the early moon rovers did.
You can enter the control center of R6 to take part on the test runs. Have fun with driving my rover during the daylight hours and give a feedback whether all works fine with your equipment or what went wrong eventually.
