Let's Make Robots!

Looking for contributers

Hello all. I think that this is a fantastic site, but is missing one thing. And I would like to mkae up for it with a new site I am making. It's going to be a site selling robotics kits, and I am looking for people who would like to controbute their robots and robot designs. I would like to stress though, that the main focus isn't profit, but providing easy to obtain kits to begginers and advanced builders alike to use, instead of having to search multiple sites for components, etc. Anyways, anyone interested (I would especially like the yellow drumming bot to be on the site :) ) please post here.

 

UPDATE: Since I have been given permission by some people to use their designs, I think it would make it much easier for me to keep track of them if you contacted me through my profile. Thank you, looking forward to have your robot for sale on my site. :D

Anyone else?
..is different than the YDM, but you can definately use it, if you're interested. I'll have to do a write-up on how to simultaneously move and play music. here
I'm trying to build a meccano free version of SplatBot. One where most of the parts could be laser cut. If I finish it (I have many half done projects at the moment) you can have the pattern, schematics etc.

 Always like that robot. would be great to have

 

 

A robot you want to work is the one thats least likely.

Once I'm done with LineB you can have the design. It's really simple to build and great for beginners!

 Hey, thanks! thats another robot to add to the list! Im starting on the site now

I've several times tried to awaken interest in an LMR-hosted public domain set of designs for robots devices on a common bus. The idea being that you have a small, medium or large motor controller, an ultrasonic sensor, an LED array, an IR interface, a serial interface, a USB interface, a servor controller... all with a common bus (such as I2C).

Sure these things already exist, but I'd like to see a library on LMR of designs for the devices. The designs would be freely available to anyone who wanted to build them from scratch, or they could be sold as kits with a sizable chunk of the takings going towards paying LMR hosting fees.

sounds like a good idea

That's Lego's nxt kit that you're describing. Which already comes with a huge set of official and un-offical extra parts and a host of public domain sites offering robot designs.
