Let's Make Robots!

DAGU Promotion, Cheap HW, LMR Mr. Basic Special LMR version + 3 prizes!

Update: --== DAGU ROCKS ==--


Update: NEW manual attached! Replacing old one. Sorry for the format, PDF was too heavy :)


 Hi dear fellow robot builders, members of LMR.

As I am sure you know, OddBot has made us some cool contact with Jack from China, the guy behind DAGU Electronics.

Now I also had some talks with Jack himself regarding a production of some of my stuff (Thanks Odd).

And I tell you, the guys at DAGU moves fast, sends money as promised, and the hardware is actually REALLY NICE! 

And I am NOT just saying this because he is supporting us, I have tried quite a lot of HW that people wanted me to promote on LMR, and it was not all that good ;)

However - now I just got this cool mail from he’s assistant, Claudia:

Dear Frits,
How about these days?
This time I'll show you a great kit, named Mr. Basic, consisting of a aluminum alloy chassis with an extension PCB, which provides a reliable expand platform for DO-IT-YOURSELF. You can find the photos of it in attached files.
So far, we just have Chinese package for Mr. Basic, but there are English user manuals, so everybody can assemble it with his own hands depending on the manuals.
For Chinese market, our original idea is letting all robot hobbyists can create their own robots with our Mr.Basic.So Jack thinks this product will also be a good choice for the members from LMR.
We are excited about your idea about "LMR members editon", so we would like to offer 50 sets Mr. Basic printed with LMR logo with a special price only for LMR members, it just cost them 22USD($15 per set and another $ 7 for shipment) to own one. Every member who bought one and designed a new variation can put their creatures on LMR, and you can let other members and users vote out three best ones, each winner will be offered $100 from DAGU as prize.
What do you think about the above idea? Hopefully waiting for your respond.
Kind Regards,
Claudia

  2. If you feel like using your Mr Basic Special LMR-version for more than a mantelpiece, then make some robot out of it. Submit it as a robot on LMR.

  3. IMPORTANT: TO make sure that you participate in the competition, you must add the tag “LMR DAGU Contest” to the posting.

  4. Vote for your own robot. (I know you are going to do so anyway) - But also; Vote for other robots that you think should win!

  5. Wait for everyone to be finished and cross your fingers :) We make a special page for this, with all participating robots, and the 3 robots voted highest will each win the price of USD 100!


Yes!

 

PS: Since this is going to be won by robots only seen on the page, good images matters as well as cool robots. I just know from experience. For inspiration, see this that I wrote once :) (The part about taking good pictures)

PPS: Thank you OddBot, Jack, Claudia, and DAGU! Nice going! :D

PPPS: You are a very competent person.

I have just ordered mine!!

If you have ordered then it's in the mail. If you haven't then you are running out of time!

Does any one know which courier service they will be using?

It may vary from country to country. For me their packages arrive by DHL.

Here are the dimensions straight from the engineers thanks to Claudia. Click on the picture to zoom in.

I have made a SketchUp drawing of Mr. Basic. It has nearly same dimensions that OddBot found out, but without any warranty. Hope it will be usefull for placing sensors and electronics.

You will find it, with all my other Robotic stuff at Google 3D warehouse

 

Now I just need to get better at using SketchUp

Amazing!

Perhaps someone should just ask DAGU for the 3D files?
