fot this?

 

I'm not sure but all I know is that this robot really looks mechatronic :D thats what a robot should be:D

That's correct. I ditched the mobility chair frame, just salvaging the electronics, motor and rear wheels/transaxle. It is integrated into the frame from a pedal car, which I will now start to build servo controls for. There's a lot more info on the blog page for this robot, but here's a pic of it's current state.

 

Always wanted to make one of these! Keep us updated, man!

Will do. Check the blog for the most recent updates.
