Perhaps they are trying to rival Vernier labs.
That does sound a little odd doesn't it?
Maybe they should refer to it as a clock add-on.
I agree that it sounds odd.
Maniac of Mayhem use of this is not very much is building robot but mainly for datalogging.
now you can collect the data with real time stamp for analysis rather than than some odd unknown timer value.
Now, if there were a way to power on and auto-run a program, or remotely power up and auto-run, I'd *really* be in buisness... :-)
Be careful not to reveal your true identifty :)
And yes, I do have stories about bats :-)
Sounds like a great theme for a new NXT adventure
- not for the claustrophobic
you will use the NXT-G block for RTC,
connect RTC to NXT brick and have NXT connected to your PC.
on NXT-G block for RTC there is button to set time.
it will take time from your PC and set the RTC.
very simple to do.
BTW they come preset to EST.
1) cuckoo clock
2) a robot with behavior based on the day of week or time of day
3) calendar reminders
Unfortunately, it couldn't do much after it "woke up" due to limitations of the RCX (no way to run a program on startup).
The idea behind the modifications was solar power. The bot went to sleep at "night" when no power was available, and resumed activity when power was restored.
> says you were trapped twice...
Yeah, how's that for not learning my lesson? Cave trips at the time were 3-5 days basecamps, with some... problematic... sections between the exploration limits and the entrances:
(During our entrapment, the water was significantly higher than shown here). This passage is *thought* to take around 2 weeks to dry out enough to allow an exit... but we didn't know. Thus why I wanted to datalog remotely, to determine the risk. Turns out, I determined it (*twice*) from the in-cave side, for a cumulative period of about 8-9 days. Why we do this is a different issue, but you can see some of those reasons:
All the people in that picture are me (multiple exposure), and I was the first person to ever set foot in this passage (this is what I did on my 21st birthday... what did you do? :-).

Despite a *whole* lot of effort from both the Ropple and Fisher Ridge sides of the proposed connection, none has ever been found... and believe me, we've looked! The caves come within about 800 feet of each other at one point, and at one time there was actually a dig attempt on the Ropple side of that. But for many reasons (geological), this is not perhaps the most likely place to find a connection anyway.
Nope, there is no "hidden connection", and at least on the FRCS side of things, we're too busy scooping leads on each other to keep anything secret for long in the first place!
