Robot Party - Motion & Distance Sensing Part 1

At last night's Robot Party the theme was motion & distance sensing! We had a great turnout with some really fantastic knowledge shared about ultrasonic and IR sensors. You can see all the video clips in this playlist, also see some screenshots in this flickr set.

Jinnarin's third robot (YDM clone). (Updated: 9-1-11)

Hi all. I have been away for some time (health reasons), but I am finally back and starting on my third robot. You can see my first robot here and here, I never made a page for my second robot, as it was just a remake of the start here robot (maybe it will make a special appearance).

I telecommute between Austin and Dallas and have wanted a telepresence robot for a couple of years. I finally got the courage to build one (not being much of a … Read more

Ro-Bot-X Chumby Re-Born !

After Ro-Bot-X's little chumby suffered a massive overdose of voltage, he's back up and running with MRL (headless)

Here he's boadcasting a very slow camera stream to my house (2500 miles away)

Yay !  Back from the dead !

It's not super stable video feed, but I have some ideas on that.. also we could try some different camera's too...

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.
