Inspired by this one: http://www.instructables.com/id/Strandbot-a-solar-arduino-powered-RC-motorize/ Autonomous walker, based on a model of the strandbeest. This unit runs on 20rpm 6 volt motors and walks real slow. On the other hand, it's very silent. Due to it's sweeping sensor it can run autonomous, but it can also be controlled with a bluetooth enabled device. On the front a small speaker, connected to a voice record and playback chip; when it runs into something, it does a Uh-Oh :)
Things still to work on:
- give it a paint job
- give it additional light effects
Update 140414: 20 rpm motors replaced with 100 rpm motors to give it some speed. Had to rebuild the center peace because of the length of these motors. New video available.
Update 210414: Gave it a face!
