Hey cool.  My son rigged up an Arduino with a three-axis linear
accelerometer/three-axis angular accelerometer.  I am astonished at how well
this cheap little IC works.  That Arduino is a 30 dollar processor and the
accelerometer was about eight bucks.  So now we are ready to try to rig up a
self-riding bicycle, or at least a first phase experimental version which
doesn't need to follow a road.  We can take it up to a sloped parking lot
where its only task is to stay upright.


Next we go down to the quarterly bicycle auction at the police department,
buy a 20 dollar bicycle and get this phase working.  Once we get that, we
figure out if we can add a white-line tracking routine.  If we get all that
going, we are ready to race down the back side of Mount Hamilton.
