Let's Make Robots!

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...

OHHH!  Ya, I love transparent stuff like that.  I'd like to make one of these out of polycarbonate.  I have a bunch too.  :-)  err.... maybe I'll have time this winter.  it is really cool to be able to see the moving stuff.

Your design is very nice, but we have made a little change on the head part, maybe it brings more smart feeling.

How do you think about it?

Hope everybody will like it.

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

Considering the head contains the motors, batteries, gearboxes and circuitry you will have to make the neck the same size as the previous head

yeah! :D

like jaimies head mut with small ir(sharp like) eyes in the front!  good mix?

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 would just love to see a huge version of that going down my street.

you are crazy

 

no, he's determined... and rightfully so
My wife and I just started to watch the videos and love your documentation! As Red Green always says "If the women don't find ya handsome, they'll at least find ya handy"...LOL
