Let's Make Robots!

If you have already built a successful and working robot, look away !

Gordon McComb, The author of Robot Builder's Bonanza has sent LMR 4 signed books that we can give away.

We could have done an ordinary challenge where you actually have to build a robot to be eligible of winning one of the four books, but that is not the case this time ! To deserve having this book, you don't have to make a robot, well umm, you don't even need to know anything about robots ! And that's the whole point. We want to give these to the people who deserve the info inside the most.

We will be on the lookout for potential people who might make good use of these books not just store them, their is no way to enter this challenge nor a deadline :)

winners will be informed by an email and their names will be mentioned here.

May the WORST best robot builder win !

At last but not least, Thanks Gordon !

I ask questions about everything i am such a noob i need that book

That book look interesting. And I like robots. And I need all the help I can get.

Haha, I have to build a robot to pass one of my subjects at the beta course I'm doing! Yet I know next to nothing about building robots! This book would help me greatly!

I have the first and second editions of Robot Builder's Bonanza. :)

Haha, i may need one. I haven't never builded robot.

Necessarry parts...

Screw Driver


Soldering Iron

Lots of motivation but no clue.

My very first attempt at building or modifying a robot was using the an old Armatron from Radio Shack. Keep in mind this was a long time ago. I had no idea at the time that it had no servos, it was a giant mess of gears with a couple of motors, there was no way at the time to modify the controller.

Lets take a step into the present.

My new list of tool is much larger, I have played with and built several Rc cars, and planes. I bought an Arduino and several books on it. the small projects were fun managed not to blow the arduino building them, I can find a tone of sketches and libraries online. I am finally about to reach the point were my first atttempt at building a robot might work. Then I discovered I am an aweful programmer.....Bolean....such a strange word,

So as soon as my parts arrive wish me luck....and keep me in mind for a copy of the book. 

Sweet prize!!!


I love to read books. I like robot but don't know how to create because I don't have a book about creating robot. I see this book multiple times in the Internet, but in my country. No one vendor. I want to have this book with the author's signature. To spark ideas in creating a robot and make it a success.
