Let's Make Robots!

Giant Robot Project


Ok, soo.... I'm working on a big robot.  Its a spider tank style deal.  ..almost finished.  I've been working on it for a while.  Actually, i have 26 youtube videos on it.  Here's the first one...

i like it..

but maybe it should be just a little less.. ehh..   wall-e?  maybe a mix of jaimie's head and this!

it's also good if those eyes were range-finders!:D (but thats allready the plan, right?)

I think its cool.  Actually, the fac that the thing can walk in any direction makes it perfect for going toward targets, or around obstacels and things like that.  It gives a lot of options for IR sensors and stuff like that.  A wireless camera ontop would be cool too.

Really, I figure half the people who'd want one of these will make whatever kind of head they want on it.  :-)

Jaimie

We have made a new one : )

I'm sort of hoping someone else will chime in here.  :-P  I'm not big on aesthetics.  I make things work, and they generally end up looking pretty good.  I rarely put extraneous things on them.  You guys are the marketting geniuses, though.  I'd say go with what you think will work well.  :-)  Actually.... it is nice to have something on the head indicating which direction its facing.  ...since there's no actual front or back to the body. 

 

Great project, but how will it get around all the trees? :-)
Around? Pssh, it will go THROUGH the trees.
Standing on 3 of its legs! I am dieing to see it walk. Can't wait for the next video segment
ya.. heh heh.  I'm kinda busting my butt on this thing.  must remember to breath...
Just got done watching #33. Jamie, you're the man.
And 34 is up!
