Manual vacuum broom

Pump on broomstick has a two way action, decided by a switch: out or in. 

Pumping air out - pushes the dust out of its location  with an "air thrust".

Pumping air in - creates enough suction to pull the dust and dirt into the "dust bin".

Bike chair, for resting comfortably when your not riding

Quarterbakery idea: bike chair

- chair that folds out of side of bike when your not riding it, to be used for comfortably resting. Instead of tying the bike and leaving it, lean on it for support!!

Here's how I drew it in Deviant art 

There's a feature to see how it was drawn, and in it you can see the chair when its folded. 

This drawing was started from a realistic 3d simulation of another Quarterbakery and Halfbakery idea of mine - the Pedal Assist.

quarterbakery - robot kit

Quarterbakery idea: Robot kit -
Prefabricated robot controllers and parts

The difference between this and Lego Mindstorms, QFix Robot Kit, and other educational robot kits, is that:

  • No limit on size
      • This is for building robots of any size - NOT just for education
  • No computer language
      • There is a more "natural language" for programming. 
      • NO C or C++ or anything like that
  • No electronics
      • All parts are compatible
      • Connected in parallel and talk to each other 
      • Controller units that connect with each other

Each unit includes: 

  • A "controller unit" that connects to the other controller units
  • The "equipment part" - the part that moves or does the task that the controller controls. 
  • Command set:  A set of input and output commands that control the unit with a set "API"

The units include:
  • Coordinator (a brain) - note there can be several working together, in which case each will serve as a "brain section".
  • Access: arm, hand, finger
  • Motion: leg, leg pair, multilegs, wheel control
  • Visual input:  
    • Low level: Light detector, motion detector, infra red detector, distannce detector
    • Med level: Camera, camera eyes, scanner
    • Sight analyzer, OCR, 
  • Visual output: LEDs, LCD, LCD Screen, Video output
  • Audio input: simple (sound detection at different levels), complex: audio processing, speech detection, speech analysis and understanding
  • Manual control: mouse, joystick, 
  • Communications: Wifi, Bluetuth, USB etc
  • Accessories: powertools, printer, digital storage (usb stick or memory cards)
