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 want it ...

I really like to make robot, but in my country the components hard to find and expensive...

Please give the book for me , but i don't know how to pay it , LOL...

Oh yeah , I am building avoider bot now , if i finished it I will update this comment . thx

really say it ends in 2014! Wow, that is funny, I think they will be gone before weds... though that is a guess.

 

Great work, Jad :)

I have the third edition, and it is great! I haven't done the projects, but I use it as a reference for lots of things. I also recommend "Robot Building for Beginners" and "Intermediate Robot Building" by Dave Cook at http://www.robotroom.com!

i really want this book, i read a lots of books but i don't have robotics books, i always searched the whole internet for robot making tips, unfortunately i have no money to buy this book, so i hope i will win some of this! i haven't post a robot on LMR that's because i am in a quest on buliding one and i'm on half way to do it, but i need more tips!

here's a link of my "on process" robot:

p.s. 

if i'll win, i would really take care of it, like my 3 year-old unscratched sherlock holmes book!

I didn't understand how one can win this one ?

I think it is a case of you must have posted some sort of robotic project on LMR before so that they know your serious about robotics and that you are willing to post your creations here.

Other than that, those most in need will win.

Then I definitely want to have one of those , I have tried to make my self robots but now I want to make something different and a book like this will help .

is about making robots, it gives you robot projects for ones that walk, and crawl. But it does teach you other things.

 

I actually was looking for this exact book. I never have gotten around to buying it yet. I heard there is some nice projects and even teaches Arduino. I wanted this book to get information. I hope I can get one of them. I would definitely read this. I want this book. Like Noob says, I want the information in that book!!! Im going to see if I can get on of the four first. If I don't, well then I will buy one later. But this is definitely the book I want right now.
