Let's Make Robots!

Feedback on PopPet instructions

Hello all!

Firstly, just thought I'd let you all know that PopPet is going really well. Everything I need has arrived and I am now boxing up all the bits and pieces.

One thing that still needs finishing up is the PopPet build instructions. These aren't going to be included in the kit, but rather available on the website for viewing or download for offline use (due to costs of printing). A QR code is going to be in the kit to take them to the instructions.

LMR Intro Video



Whilst editing my newest video I found I was getting a little sick of just having an LetsMakeRobots static image at the end of my videos. Because of this I thought I would throw together a short LMR clip to make it look all fancy and stuff.

You are free to download these and use however you like.

The YouTube video is of the clip.

I've been working on this for a long while now, gone through several revisions, got quotes of parts, calculated fees, calculated shipping costs and taxes and here we have it:

I feel dumb

It all started when I was programming PopPet. I was using the simple way of using the HC-SR04:

Robot Talk Show 'Babbling Bots'


UPDATE 20/5/2014

The show was succesfully livestreamed and can now be watched by those who missed it here.

Thanks to all the LMR folk that came along! They've told me it was good and I thought it went good so I'm happy.

Get well soon Carl!

I think I can speak for the majority here, but make sure to leave your thoughts below aswell.

Carl, we haven't known you long, but in that short period of time you have done some amazing things for us. You are the hero that we deserve. The site is looking amazing and things are getting better here everyday.

I would just like to start this thread to show our appreciation to Carl and the amazing work he is doing for us.

Get well soon Carl!
