www.meandollie.com is here.

In his new home Ollie has a blog and tutorial.

Ollie also has an Instructable that is getting a lot of attention! Check it out :)

Aaaannd to top things, there is a new video.

 

I was finally able to make the electronics light enough to enable flight and achieve the desired behavior. Here is a documentation video of Ollie’s first flight.

 

PLAYTECH SATURDAY is hosted by Parsons Design and Technology (DT) in collaboration with Parsons Pre-College Academy (Parsons SPACE). Students may bring their games and projects and play test them with high school students for a duration of 2 hours. Ollie happened to participate in the Playtech last weekend, here are some images. It was great to have kids play and respond to Ollie. I was able to get a lot of positive feedback about Ollie’s form and wing movement even though he was not yet flying.

The feedback I received from my writing this week indicates that I should do more editing and make my ideas more concise. At the same time, I need to define the project even more clearly and nail down main points of who Ollie is. The way I weaved my thesis concept with the rest of the ideas was very well integrated with the thesis project.
