Let's Make Robots!

Logobot

Right now, basic obstacle avoidance and plays music.

 This robotic platform is still a work in progress.  I wanted to build a medium to large size robot for a long time!  after joining a robotics club and with the help of a friend, I started work on this guy! 

UPDATE- I have installed a sound module from Sparkfun.com and now can cycle through a playlist created for club members' enjoyment. video update soon! (will show arm action!)

UPDATE 11/6/13 Sorry for the long pause, for those of you who have been waiting, I have just posted a new video  on You Tube displaying Logobots arm movements. Further videos will demonstrate this robots' abilities. ( Less lag times!) I hope you enjoy!

UPDATE 11/12/13 Using a Romero version 2 as the main board instead of roboduino. Romero's built-in motor driver made interfacing with the new motors so much easier!

UPDATE 12/7/13 New video posted showing gripper(s) in action. Still working on adding more "stuff" for ooh and ahh effects! Thank you for all your comments. more vids and projects coming!  See new video here: http://youtu.be/mSJE6lSj7GA

UPDATE 12/20/13 New video demonstrating IR remote control. I'm still working on the bells and whistles. Please note the subtle facelift! gone are the "poor man's fiber optics" (joke) They have been replaced by clear rods that give a more polished look. You can find the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rlcJrNiy9A.

Very Nice, and its so big.  It definitely LOOKS like a robot, excellent work.  Thanks for sharing it with us.

I liked this video of the arms moving.

I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Do you make any money from the YouTube commercials? If not why have them? Having to watch a part of a commercial is usually enough to keep me from watching a video at all.

Chrome + adblock ftw

Wow! I had no idea that was possible.

Thank you.

You are welcomed! Thanks for watching!

Works almost all of the time, but you can sit there infront of your monitor for hours and only have 1 or 2 ads appear on pages in that entire session (sometimes including youtube, I dont know why some slip through but its alot less annoying to put up with 1 ad in a day on youtube than one every 2 minutes).

 

Some sites like 4od do also detect adblock and prevent access to the site, but there is an allow site button in adblock to fix that. 4od sucks anyway. I would rather download the TV show I missed from morally dubious services than legitimately via 4od.

I would like to see more deatils. How does it looks like inside that can :-)

 Will work on it!  Thanks for watching!

I clicked the new video on the old video and it says that it is private.

Hello Lukeyes,

                     I changed the setting so you should be able to see it now!  I hope you like it. Sorry for the oversight.
