I have that idea back to 5~6 years ago. At that time, I couldn't find any digital distance sensor and thinking to design one. I went to talk with an engineer in Parallax, Rosevile in California where is 45min drive from my office. Anyway, long story short. Recently I found the sensor so I teamed up with my buddy Rix who know programming well. So, we split the project in half: hardware and software. I take care the hardware production and he take care the coding. First prototype was terrible because wrong ball screw was using and some design flaw. It cost me a trip back to China and got it fixed. The first version could travel as fast 80mm/s. The revised model can run as fast as 300mm/s.

See a new video I made:
