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 ;)

Ah so you used servos not DC motors cool! no wonder your movement was precise!

low geared dc morors would probably be good enough, the servos have problems of their own, 2 servos ordered at the same time(probably from the same batch) of the same brand and same specs does not move the same..... :)

this is my first robotawesome

I don't get it - who wrote LMR?

Made with my Light Painter Arm (prototype).

That is so cool!
