LMR CNC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone,  I had an idea for the new year and here it is. I think there are more than 20.000 members on LMR If everyone would pitch in $1 or $2 or more there would be plenty money to buy multiple CNC machines and maybe even enough to make a LMR Robot based on a EZ-b platform. Then we could have whoever wants to submit an idea for the robot send in their ideas with there money. only the LMR members that send money will have free access to the cnc  cnc wed adders

yuri suzuki: colour chaser

Hmmm....but why have such unpleasant sounds?  

As an elementary school art teacher I really like this.  Kids would be so excited to hear their color path.

I found this on designboom.

Happy New Year, y'all!

First Robot Plan

I'm about to start my first robot project so i thought i would document my progress, I don't imagine anyone else will be interested so i'm mainly doing this so i have a record.Controller PCB

For a project at Uni I have made a Wireless controller and a motor driver PCBs. They both include a built in arduino and communicate via XBees. I get to keep the PCBs from the project and have bought the ATmega328 chips, XBees and a chassis as these are the parts we had to return.

I plan to use this as a base for my robot and add more features as and when i can.

Navigate around via IR, avoid stuff.

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.
