Let's Make Robots!

Bracerbot Beta

Walks around sends data from multiple sensors via bluetooth then sticks to arm

My first quadruped, I wanted to make it special, so after you finish gathering data robot will come to you and will wrap around you arm as a barecelet (see video). Still need to programm walking and data sending via bluetooth, perhaps I will make an android app for it.

*Update 18.9* spray-painted legs to black, finally started to program some walking. Currently I'm working more on gait and I would like to create processing application for him.

*Update 28.9* I have written small Processing app for bot using controlP5 library. Also data obtaining now works, lags on the app are caused by screen capture program.

What board are you using? Did you use a plain board and soldered the components to it?

I've made my own board

How did you get the parts for it? 3D printing?

I don't have access to the 3D printer so basically everything is made by my hands, that's the reason why it's not so accurate :D

I think maybe RobotGoose is wondering what I am-what's holding the servos together and to the battery-feet? It looks like black epoxy to me, but could also be some kind of Plastruct or sugru.

ahh sorry, I'm not very comprehensive :D I've used small L-type brass hinges and lot of hotglue. this image should help http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-rDyZThJkfsM/UEOj-D1H7mI/AAAAAAAAATc/RUHOWC67Ipw/s1600/DSC01080.JPG
