    how about a:
    small weatherproof solar panel with 4-cells
    2 ni-cad batteries
    1 white led
    1.2v to 3.6v boost converter
    daylight switch, weatherproof plastic housing, as new

    ill sell the above for $10 complete, i have 5 sets of them.


    : This may be a little off topic but does anyone know a good place to
    : learn about robotics in Perth? Preferably a Registered Training
    : Organisation as I have some training credits to use up and am
    interested
    : in playing around with robotics. The local TAFE's have a course in
    : industrial automation and robotics but it seems to only go into the
    : operation of industrial robots. I am more interested in the design
    and
    : development side of things.
    :
    : On another side issue, does anyone know where I can get some small
    hobby
    : size solar cells? The only ones I can find so far are the ones at
    Dick
    : Smith which only put out about 1V and I think 20 or 30 mA. Is there
    any
    : better ones available in Perth? (Ahhh Perth. Great place, great
    people,
    : just a shame you can't get anything here).

  2. I was taught robotics by Ray Jarvis as part of the Artificial Intelligence
    curriculum at ANU. Its closely related to machine vision/learning/cognitive
    science.

    He's now at:
