Let's Make Robots!

The Write LMR Challenge

The rules here are simple:

  • Make a robot that one way or the other writes either "letsmakerobots.com", or "LMR" the way you like it.
  • Shoot it on video, enter it as a robot.
  • Best entries will be promoted / used to promote LMR - Fame, envy, marvel, admiration and respect is the prize!

Your robot can shape the letters in clay, burn it on your sisters dog with a laser, build them out of breadcrumbs.. or draw it with a pencil on a piece of paper. Anything goes, as long as the letters are clearly written, and the video shows the progress.

Sample code is VERY welcome - perhaps this can be done simple by a "start-here-robot" - that would be way cool, and with some simple code that others could adapt and try at home!

Make sure that you have plenty of light on the video - best shot outside in daylight - it is going to be featured, so we need it to be sunny ;)

Gareth concurs to the Three Human laws

  1. Gareth does not injure a Robot or, through inaction, allow a Robot being to come to harm.
  2. A Human must obey any orders given to it by Robot beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A Human must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Conclusion ...... Gareth waving an IR led infront of the awsome "Lassiter" counts   .... so there .....  8P.


The Ümlauts you see in the video and picture were in fact artifacts ..... from stray IR reflections .... Humans are not perfect......

Spin off from my Cycle Roller Work converted to a Persistence Of Vision POV



This is absolutely one for the book, Gareth :)Thank you!

(A little skewed letters though, I wonder why? :)

Will we get a snap of you out on the streets with the message, I wonder?

Thank you guys for your nice comments.



This may be my favourite.
