Let's Make Robots!

Evil Dead - an RC art bot


Hello

Here is my art robot named "Evil Dead". This name comes from the movie trilogy which features "Ash", an S-mart clerk thrown through an assortment of crazy adventures. Really, if you have not seen these movies, THEY ARE A MUST SEE!!!


The robot is made from regular Vex parts, some glued on prints, and is remote controlled. It features a severed life sized deadite head, neon green cold cathode lighting, arduino controlled strobe lights, 4wd, and Omni wheel steering.

Future improvements: I plan on adding more theme pictures once I copy them from the movies and print them.

The strobe lights make it extra creepy and all three of the Evil Deads are some of my favorite movies because of how funny they. I know they're not actually supposed to be, but they are hilarious!

I think the first one was an attempt to be serious and scary. Evil Dead 2 pretty much gave up on that and went for hilarity.

Its all about artistic expression.

There's no difference in terms of Art from a line follower and what I've built.

Form meets function.

A line follower is expected to follow a line.

An art bot themed on a horror movie trilogy should be creepy.

The fun comments have convinced me this project is a success!  :-)

 

PS

I had a cool unexpected surprise with the video, which was that the green neon shines through the front foam core picture.

If I turn off the strobes, the front picture actually glows green from the back light effect.

I didn't see that coming and is a nice surprise.

I only watched the trailer and that's creepy enough for me.

Ash kicks ass!!! My favourite trilogy in the word!!!

May I suggest to put one or two green LED below the head and driving around the area at the night. Remember take a camera with you.

Hoho, what a crazy design...not seen before.

But besides the design, please also give us some info about the electronics and the things it can do ;-)

This head is really scary...haha
