Let's Make Robots!

demannu, the unnamed robot

roams and wonders

It’s been quite a while without building robots… errr.. creatures..

anyhow I’m releasing this new creature, wich is still a work in progress..  and since I can’t think on a name for it, I will call it Demann, witch is “unnamed” backwards (without the ‘u’)… sounds like ‘demon’,  and for the sake of insanity, it looks like a little demon..  :D

the wheels where designed by Catarina Mota, and if you go to thingiverse, you can download the source code, and print your own wheels if you have access to a 3D printer

the chassis, this time I wanted to try wood, it’s quite good to work and to do fast prototyping

It isn’t finished yet, but I wanted to share with you  :)   will add more sensors and more cool stuff as soon as I have time


UPDATE   10-02-2010

Two more infrared sensors were added on the front, this way he’s more sensitive to the environment.

Nice work this is different to all those other sensor robots

because this one has speed and its compact and i just like

the use of everything.

Good luck in your future of Robot building

Hey Benbo! I would love to help you, but the makerbot is not with me, and I won't have access to the machine in the next 2 or 3 weeks..   I also want to build one machine for me  :)
Oh mighty keeper of the makerbot, this humble peasant begs you to print him some reprap mendel parts...
Have reprap = have friends ;)

A reprap, a reprap, my kingdom for a reprap...

My Kingdom

what browser are you using? The image inserter thingie does not (currently) work on Chrome or Safari.

i'm using firefox and SnowLeopard, on the editor I can see the image, when I post it this is what appears:

Are you trying to insert images from your uploaded files on LMR, or referencing external images? It's just happening in comments I take it?

external images, and seems to happen only in comments..
