butler bot

 i have this idea for a butler bot. inspired by Norrislabs (BDS) beverage delivery system http://norrislabs.com/.  it will have 1 propeller board it will handle motion, the sensors and a slave for bat lvl temp snsor and controlling the peltier units. it wil have 2 window up/down motors with a h-bridge for each. it will be powered by 2 12v bats for the motion and a 7.2 bat for the prop boards and speakers. the whole thing should be about 4 ft tall.the fridge should hold 3 sodas depending on the size.

The Robot Builder's R-duino

June 24th, 2011.

I've been asked if I can make a board similar with the Robot Builder's Shield that also has the microcontroller on board and is compatible with regular Arduino shields. Not an easy task to do if I want to keep it with through hole components, but it's a challenge.

So I have designed a first prototype of the Robot Builder's Arduino R-duino. Features:

Update 11/9-2011 So I finally got a chance to take the ROV out for a test. I knew that there was a buoyancy issue as it floats to high in the water. So I took along … Read more

Alliance of Droids - Companion Robot - Help needed!

Hello everyone. Just so everyone knows, I am an absolute beginner when it comes to electronics and that sort of stuff. I built my own R2-D2, but it wasn't motorized.

I want to build a companion robot for the Alliance of Droids - my charity. I was planning to use some Arduino's for the project, as well as a controller system.

I want to know the estimated cost, the parts I would need, and some more information.

If anyone would be interested in helping me, please visit my website @ www.allianceofdroids.com.

Thansk for your help.
