Interesting, I'm curious to see how that works.

That's cool, one thing I really wanted to make was a robot that would wander around all day, maybe using light sensors to follow the sun, and just set it down on a big piece of paper with a pen strapped to it, to get a map of its wanderings.

Does your robot operate vertically on an upright board? When you say 'board', I'm imagining a blackboard or a markerboard, is that what you mean? Or some other kind?

Sounds cool! I'd have to say I dont like the idea of lego robots but then again I'm going to school for robotic engineering so why would I like pre-engineered robots. What type of board does this bot clean may I ask?

Lego robots aren't pre-engineered! I would say they're "pre-machined" as you don't have to manufacture parts, but buolgin interesting Lego robots definiretly requires engineering.

It is supposed to clean any type of board. I mean, it will have an accesory in which we can attach a towel (or similar, to clean market boards) or a eraser (to clean blackboards). But we haven't designed this accesory yet. I hope on friday I can upload some images and videos of the robot for you to have an idea on how it works.

Cool! :D

Welcome!!

That is going to be a fun project, looking forward to see that!! And I am sure after a while you will have to try to put a pen in the hand of the robot and make it draw as well ;)

Yes! Why not? It's basically a big X-Y plotter! Excellent idea.
