Robotic Art Do It Yourself Open Source Project 

The idea is to build a robot experimenting all possibilities of opensource frameworks and libraries with an artistic goal: 

Sensibilize on what can be done now with power of passions and hobbies, and how much robotics instruments and possibilities are rising every day. Truly sure to leave out tecno-narcisism I don't use arms and antennas. Design will be minimal.


-Only two servos (with wheels) + casterball moves all  

-netbook with flash memory avoiding hd failures with movements and shocks


-sd84 I/O 84pin  (sd84 on google)



-various sensors



-Avoiding obstacles

-web controlling from site

-face/person recognition (opencv)

-a little of chatting with vocal emulation



I can't leave arduino program and use DEV or others to compile my program.

I don't know how to interface SD84 with a simple DEVC++ sheet.



All project will be stored on my site www.gioblu.com when it will be active, now I am very late for graduation and I must build on everything for february. We are a little community in Italy www.ivotek.it and this project will be my graduation experimentation in NABA (New academy of arts of Milan).


Coul'd someone help me for the software part??

Ok i try it out immediately

Visual Editor???

you mean a gui editor, mono and qt both have exellent visual editors 

Hey you should use ubuntu, it is much more proficient when prototyping, its also open source which is a big +, and ubuntu to windows is easier to port than windows to ubuntu

I had some problem with gcc because I am not able to compile without a visual editor (i am not a coder). But I am open to advises!! I am triyng ubuntu on my pc and is perfect, gimp and inkscape too.  

I am not a programmer but I can work it on. I am firstly a fotographer, art director and webdesigner, not exactly engineer :P but I whant to try this hard task. 


Awesome project! I am thinking about doing something smiler. The software is by far the hardest part. How good of a C++ programmer are you? I'm using python for my project because it is a simpler language and quicker to learn but can expand to meat any goal because it is based on C++ I believe. Good luck! Here is a link to the project I am going to try.
