Cheap Absolute Optical Encoder

If you need a cheap absolute optical encoder, check out the Bourns EAW which is ~$15 from Mouser.

I'm again considering my spinning head driven by the Parallax PIR sensors.

The only question is whether I use a gearbox servo or build my own motor & encoder.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
