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 ;)

Thank you guys for your nice comments.

This is my attempt to write LMR

Its nothing compared to your robots guys, anyway here goes:


And pretty good one! Congrats and keep it up! :D

Nice work! It's a challenge to write with the pen mounted off to the side, but you did it!

thanks a lot IG , you gave me loads of inspiration which made it possible :)


Thought i should give it a go....

well done, but why are the wires hanging around??

The wires are there because i ran out of batteries, one acble is to power the arduino and one is connected to a voltage regulator to power the 3 servos. Its a mess testing it out with wires...
