I really do not know what it does

The I really Do Not Know What It Is Thing!

I just had to do this - One day I may show more tricks with it..

That was just jitter from when i had crap code and not a dedicated servo controller. But hey - that kind of things can be inspiration.. possibly for later.. :)

OMG, the second video is so cool, this robot has great potential. Keep up the great work!
well that was quite a random creation but its a robot all the same. =)

That's awesome :) Is that a 2-axis accelerometer, or 3-axis?


Seriously, though. Which accelerometer did you use? Did you get freebies engineering samples?

2, but so far I am only using 1 :)

How about making it walk? Or even run?

How about you build one and make it do that :D

very nice, i loved the idea.. keep surprising us =D

Lol - Yes - It could do Disco - and Yes, it could climb stairs, and yes, it is an accelerometer :)

It is just immensely funny to program, I cannot stop playing with it even though I should get moving instead of messing, it does so many different stupid things with the simplest of code. It is like all spasms and all disco ever made is put in a blender :D

It was based on my usual Picaxe 28 board on the video - but I need better servo-control (too much jigger), so now I just ported it to a nice board with a picaxe 18 and a dedicated servocontroller hooked up by i2c. I think the board is called axe21 or something, no time to check :)

It is really quick to make one; It is just 8 servos mounted in a "H", and then an accelerometer and a micro/servocontroller.

I'll teach it some tricks, and shoot some video of it as soon as I get the time!
