Toy Car Rape (My first robot)
First of all, hello LMR!
I'm new here so very impatient to learn everything and meet everybody. I saw this website few months ago and instantly fell in love with all this robot making stuff. This is my first robot, which is made from a toy car, that cost me about 2$.
Had to break it, cut it and do all sort of other nasty things to this toy to make it work the way I wanted, that's why I called it Toy Car Rape. :)
Hot glue was my savior!
All it basically does is just drives slowly avoiding objects and turning on the lights when it's dark. ( some glitches appear when lights are on, probably of the voltage drop )
Servo at the front is used to turn the wheels.
Considering the fact, that I did not have any previous experiences with electronics and programming my own code, I think I did a fine job. Also I am one big lazy-ass, so I am impressed with myself that I've finished it.
I wasn't sure if I should post this first robot here, because it is just one in a million and does not stand out in any way, but in the end I thought that it is a great way to join this community.
Huge thanks to "Start here" tutorial and for every peace of information I found in this website, it is just great!
