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


pololu mini gears, i strongly advice this motors, very powerfull and fast


this bits will be the motors supports


and after some dremel work they look nice and ready to hold the motors


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


et voilá


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".
