Red BoB has arrived

Hi,

I'm so excited, and FrankenBoB, too. Isotope has sent me 3D printed BoB parts and a cool name badge from Canada. Thank you so much, Vadim. This time I need to pay you the beer at Campus Party.


Customizing BoB with little modules

So I am sure all of you are now aware of who BoB is. Recently K12 and I have been talking about getting some BoB instructional videos up on YouTube to further make his construction easier and introduce him to non LMRians. Through this due process we have exchanged code, pictures of BoB and other extraneous things. K12 kindly gave me the Solidworks files for BoB and asked that I make some 'attachments' for him.

Bob lifts bear.

I've been playing around with my Robonova, trying to get it to climb a rope. It is a lot more difficult than it appears, due to the balance when the robot is hanging by his hands. There is really not enough freedom of movement in his hands and arms, to do this successfully.

Anyway, he will pull on a rope though........ ;)
