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.

It's trying to load letsmakerobots.com/renders/b1/60/d5/2f/d8/3520480987_710d573c8d_o_preview_medium.jpg which, obviously, doesn't exists. Looks like the filter is choking on the thingiverse_beta.s3.amazonaws.com part of the external domain. I'm going to guess it's the underscore in the subdomain name. I'll look into it and see if I can figure out any more.
The pirates at amazonaws did something illegal. Only A-Z en hyphen are accepted characters in hostnames. Drupal must know this and filter the underscores out as "obvious typos by guibot".
