Let's Make Robots!

the smack-into-walls-a-lot


this is my first robot, it isn't that complacated. two switches, a on off and on switch some wires bateries and thats all. the switch on top is the on off and on switch, the stick is the "sensor" there is a hole in the stick so when it hits a wall it hits the switch and reverses the diretion.

Briliant idea for reversing directon

You may call it

"Mr CrashAlot Bot"

Simple, but funny. Is it fun to watch smack into walls? Worth a video?

after this one im trying to think of a way i could make it go out doors

im loading a video in a few minuts, then you can se it smash into walls.

It's a mobile most useless machine. :D

I mean no disrespect. It just kind of reminds me of the way one of those boxes sort of works.

thats cool, has a good ring to it to, the mobile most useless machine

I like it. Simple, but it does a good job at what it's supposed to do! :P

That’s a great ’robot’ based on limited resources.
For your next project you might consider the BeetleBot http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Build-a-Robot---The-BeetleBot/

i'll try ading those bumpers, thanks

not bad for a first robot.. you should have seen mines.. lol

Idea 1: find a way so it go's also a bit sideways and let it clean your floor. or make a snow shovel robot.

Idea 2: put a lot of of glas bottles in a circle with the robot in the middle and enjoy =D

Idea 3 : complete different approach, some more complicated: add a spring so the switch returns to position directly. then that switch turns on a relais (with a huge capacitor over it) so it stay on for a few seconds and falls off. next, that relais reverses direction AND power its steering.
