Self submitting robot
January 1, 2011
Thinking about it, the ultimate goal must be a robot that can not only build new robots, but the robots should also be able to submit themselves on LMR!
This challenge is not that radical, but here it goes:
Inspired by Gareths exciting work, this challenge is: Make a robot that submits itself to LMR, creates other relevant / interesting content to LMR, or a robot that shouts in the LMR shoutbox.
BUT.. It MUST be depending on physical moving parts.
So, what would not be accepted would be a programmed Macro that runs on your OS, frantically shouting in the box.
What WOULD be accepted, was a simple robot arm that pressed keys on your computer, or a mouse with motors and sensors, that could drive to the OK-button and submit itself after you posted it.
Also, if your bot just want to shout to the rest of us when you are home, or take pictures of other robots, that is cool!
What would be FTW would be anything that through mechanical means, and the use of sensors, would write text, or take pictures for the rest of us to read and or see. The more extreme, the better, but anything goes :)
You can do 99% of the task yourself, but this challenge is to make a robot that contributes or assists you to create content to be submitted on LMR - on "the backside of the camera and or keyboard" so to speak.
