Let's Make Robots!

Add Your Translation...

So we are an international website but we only speak English! Now I know this is the easiest and probably the only way it would work, but is this the only way?

On this thread, I invite us all to pick a robot sorta thing (word, phrase etc) and give us the translation in your native language. Points are awarded for creativity!

"Gal dangit! Dag nabbit! Aw pooper scooper! Sugar jets! Fartwaffle! fudgemacallit! Frickerfracker!"


I think if I go much farther than that I really do start swearing.

Fartwaffle!!! :)





Well the bipolar stepper motor is going into reverse at the second phase which is causing the manipulator pressure sensor to get an eratic reading causing the microcontroller to apply a revers command which in turn applies too little grip.

That thingamujig is fudged up.

hahaha :=) nice one!

I think I probably made this up myself, but...

I have been using "jzink" for years now. The "Jz" is pronounced like "Jean" in French but with a "ink". Jzink is a super-universal term, if you upload anything, you jzink it. For example, I have some pictures on my digital camera, I just need to jzink them into the computer. Or, I gotta jzink this video up to Youtube. Or, "I have that file, I'll jzink it onto a thumb-drive and get it to you".

I can even Jzink a new program to my Picaxe!


Nice one. You can even say it when you are drunk :)
I'd say you'd HAVE to be drunk to say it properly.

I gotta put my vote in for "himstergims"...


"hampster gyms?"
