Supporting citizen science on OpenExplorer!

Last month, we launched OpenExplorer to a wider audience and asked what you'd explore with an OpenROV. We offered a few OpenROV kits as an incentive to get the first ideas out on the site. To be perfectly honest, we weren't quite sure what to expect. Well, we were completely blown away. There were so many great ideas and inspiring expeditions posted that we felt terrible about not being able to send ROVs out to everyone. Seriously, go…See More

Thanks for the internal parts once my design is finalized I'll set aside material and machine time for you in case you want some bullet proof end caps.

Hey David,

I'm not sure the correct person to contact, but  I ordered an kit from the store back in October (order number #1261,  ROV serial number #494), but I am just starting to build it now (through step 18). 

I have discovered the kit is missing the following parts:

for Step 21:  

            -Aft battery end cap inner disk (quantity 2)

for Step 23:  

            -large (28 mm) forward end cap disk (quantity 4)

            -small (24 mm) forward end cap disk (quantity 2)

Is it possible to get these parts?  i would happily pay for another complete set of acrylic (spares wouldn't hurt!)...

Thanks and great work!

Paul

Yes it was great to have the opportunity and time on the plane back yesterday. Spent a little time this morning investigating the Maker Movement - very encouraging, much more to explore.

Some highlights from my investigation of Persig's MOQ that you may find interesting:

R. Persig, Subjects, Objects, Data and Values : http://moq.org/forum/Pirsig/emmpaper.html

Which suggests some connections his "Metaphysics of Quality" with Niels Bohr's Philosophy of Complementarity

Niels Bohr, Philosophy of Complementarity : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Complementarity_(physics)

Which aligns the mathematical formulation of quantum mechanics (statistical reality) with the classical formulation of objective reality

From there I ran into these two papers both from 1949 - even the opening paragraphs are good to have in one's head.

Niels Bohr, Discussions with Einstein on Epistemological Problems in Atomic Physics : http://www.marxists.org/reference/subject/philosophy/works/dk/bohr.htm

Albert Einstein's reply : http://www.marxists.org/reference/subject/philosophy/works/ge/einstein.htm

Wandering ruins in southern Mexico between undergrad and graduate school: 1984. Only recently rediscovered the pictures from that trip so I figured, "What the heck!?" :-)

Glad to be here! It's encouraging to us to find groups like yours. And we really appreciate your spirit of sharing ideas and plansand failures and success... and... well, just about everything that goes into the making of a DIY project. :)

Hey David - 

 

I heard you were at the Open Hardware Summit - And I think that we were standing next to a project at the end of the day - I cant remember which one - but (during the demos) - Am I correct? perhaps it was someone else, but I thought that later when looking at your site yesterday -

 

Anyway - I would LOVE to hear, see, experience... some openROV ... I will be at Maker Faire tomrorow  - so , I think you are also? I'll come say hi...

 

Great,

gabriella

 

Really look forward to seeing
