Let's Make Robots!

Yellow Dance Machine


Update: Not much yet, but I must take my own medecine and share my work :)

I have rebuild the thing completely, am finishing it when I get a litle time here and then. New pic, that is all there is on this update :)


I have been working on how to use very simple circuits to make music into pulses, transfer this over air to a robot.

Thought is then to have the robot analyze these pulses, find beats, and .. well.. basically dance to the music.

Perhaps not the wildest of dance, but at least move in a grovy fashion.

Point is that once pulses are in air, it takes a very cheap reciever to get it down, so any number of robots could be "dancing" or where ever this leads me ;)

Also, an old robot of mine could send out pulses instead of my stereo - and so robots can move in a funky way. I think.

This is the first robot made / being made to "listen to the music", I will update this as I make progres with it :)

Awesome as always, Frits!

However, did you realize that "Yellow Dance Machine" would be abbreviated the same as "Yellow Drum Machine"?

May I humbly suggest a different name, "Yellow Groove Machine", or YGM?

More photos please. A good robot page should explain what you did, what you used, how you did it etc...

:P

Sure, you are right. I will get to it, and also post videos on the chinese channels. I just have so little time, so for now, I use it on building :)

For now Vimeo still works in China (sshhh... I hope they didn't hear that :)

 

Wow is that the PICAXE. If it is, I have alot more to learn about it's programming.

Party on Frits :D

Put a BF smile on it's face, you have to!

He dances pretty fly for a yellow guy!

Why is the second video so short? Looks good!

"I have been working on how to use very simple circuits to make music into pulses, transfer this over air to a robot."

Er, like soundwaves, or is that the point?

Or are you talking radio TX/RX?

I think he means that he is trying to make the robot recognise the tempo/rhythm/beat of a song so that he can get his robot in tune with the music.
