Since every recruit goes through initiation I just ordered the START HERE kit from picaxe (well most of the parts). Cool!
And then I got hands on a stash of harddisks at my job. They are all cr*p so I took them apart. Nice!
A ton of screws and lot's of bling bling. But what now?
So far we came to this, video included. Some more to come ;)
It took some fideling with the code but it kind of works now. Very sensitive I noticed, setting some LED's to high (2..3) already made strange stuff happening (like not stopping for an obstacle).
It still needs an on/off switch, I will stick that in the back like a little tail.
It turned out very slow but that's ok I guess.
So what can it do. Well, drive arround, avoid obstacles, blink leds and moves its arms.
And it's funny. Especially when you tell "viewers" that it moves like lightning.
