When I started R3M3, a month ago, I was using a BS2 for the core intelligence. Aside from price, I enjoyed the simplicity of the Basic Stamp. However, I have since been turned onto the cost-effective-tiny-form-factor PICAXE. So I swapped out the BS2 for a 40X and have used a 14M and an old NES Advantage as it's core controller.

 Upcoming upgrades include beefier 36mm BaneBot gearmotors, quadrature encoders, and closed loop data logging.

did you use a vaccum cleaner body ?

I always tought it would be the perfect robot platform!

The container came on my Lance 50cc scooter. I never put it on and found it stuffed in the back of the closet one day. It has a key lock at the top. So to access the guts, you have to unlock her. It also has a large red relector on the rear.
I thought it was a vacuum cleaner. The wheels matched so well.
It looks like a pretty stylish robot. Sometimes repurposing things is the way to go.
Thank you. I totally agree.
What did the container used to be?
VIDEO :D

Yay! Another Convert!

Can't wait to see some vids of your bot in action :3 

Yes, an effortless conversion.

 I look forward to getting a video camera, TBD.
