Let's Make Robots!

The new beginning

Hello Robot-creators!

It has been a long time since I was last active at this site... Mainly because I've been busy making stuff like this:


(Bidirectional 16-bit databus btw).

It's quite sad actually, now that I see all those cool robots that you've come up with, and all I have is stuff like that on the pictur above. I want to make something useful! Or at least entertaining... :)

Buying from the US


I've found  a bunch of nice electronics at MaximumRobotics that I want to order. But i'm a little conserned about how much extra I'll have to pay in taxes, customs etc.

Do any of you guys have experience buying things in USA and get it shipped to a EU country?

I live in Denmark and is not familiar with how the danish customs operates.

Motor driver

Well.. Ever since I found this page (through ing.dk) I've been dying to build my first robot.

I have bough all the parts I need, and i've been trying to modify an RC toy car, but i have blown up the motor driver in it :D. I tried with the 293D, but it couldn't take the current. So right now i'm just stuck...
