'[SX] Interesting SX/B Project'

One of my recent work tasks turned out to be an interesting SX/B project: a serial inkjet printer driver.  This is part of a Parallax/HP project that will be released as a kit toward the end of the month.  Included with the kit will be a book on BS2-based experiments with the print-head by our friend, Matt Gilliland.  I've attached the SX/B file and a couple photos, the driver board schematic, and the SX/B program.

JON !
You are light years ahead of the rest of us.

I am amazed that you can create a bot that can actually write text as it wanders.  Lots of Kudos.
I really enjoy reading your Nuts and Volts articles and appreciate your on-going support for us learners.

Jon, any chance you could replace "Serial Inkjet Driver Board.JPG" with a photo whose focus is on the board and not the table? Id love to see a little more detail of the board, thanks.

Ah, I wouldn't say that I'm ahead of anybody -- I just have a little more practice with SX/B as I'm part of the development team.  What I really need to do is work (as I learn) more assembly into my programs to make them really fly.  My goal with this program, though, is to demonstate that SX/B is not a bad little product when given half a chance, and can be pushed to do neat things.  Hopefully something in the program will inspire other SX/B programmers, and if you happen to spot an area I can improve, by all means speak up!

I can tell you that it will be released shortly, and that Jon Williams did a great job coding the firmware.  John B did a great job on the board.  
Watch our website, it will be out soon.  I'm only giving this info because some info was already out there-  but we are working on not releasing information until product release is official from now on.

Mike,
Please understand that we do work with members of "the community" but have to be careful not to turn the design committee into an entity so large that a project never gets done.  The product is NOT a printing robot, that's just one of the demonstrations that is part of a kit that is about HP printer cartridge technology.  We partnered with them on this project.

Specific to your request, last week I started a discussion about a GPS "helper" chip that I will be programming in SX/B.

Mike,
I definitely understand the desire for a release date that comes from anticipation for a new product, but if you'll notice in Jon's original post:


[Quoting: "Jon Williams (Parallax)"]
This is part of a Parallax/HP project that will be released as a kit toward the end of the month.
As it is now mid-Nov, obviously that original estimation was not conservative enough. Parallax has been burned time and again, by announcing a release date, even if the date is a ballpark such as the one above, and customers express dissatisfaction with the date not being met. Just look at the discussion about the anticipated release of the new internet module, with some customers complaining that Parallax "dropped the ball" and other disparaging comments. Similar to a child that gets shocked by sticking a pin in an electrical socket, Parallax has learned it's just not worth giving advanced release date, the downside outweights any benefit. They want satisfied customers, and providing release dates generally creates customer dissatisfaction.

I fully understand about all this. A company that wants to keep a relaease date confidential is good practice. You certainly do not want to string along your customers about a product that could be abandoned. I am patient about anything new and exciting, and I have always thought that a comapny should take the time needed to provide a quaity product.

My original post in regards to asking the comunity for input is also good business practice in my opinion. Just like Jon has done about asking for people's input with the new SX/B project.

I guess all I am tring to say is: Keep up the good work and don't stop asking the community for their input."
Agreed, protect NPI (new product interduction), but still stay in touch with the community.

I really find it hard to keep up with my learning curve and all the innovative new things you keep putting out.

If that has caused any disconcertation, please forgive me.

I still think it is a great addition and that getting it out now would putting a lot of boxes under the Christmas Tree.

Seriously, awesome project.  When I first read it, I thought you had made a printer driver for the SX to interface to a printer (you know, for *normal* printing)  lol
Very cool indeed.

Hmmm - toilet paper? I fear the ink will criss-cross, not leaving very readable charaters left. Maybe, HP is willing to depelop a special ink for that purpose. Most recently, on a German Autobahn rest station, I found toilet paper with ads printed on it. With HP's new "TP Ink" you could nicely produce your own customized toilet paper. I'd like to have one with the faces of all people I hate on it. So I can put them where they belong... I'd better shut up now!
