I am basically in the middle of a long-term Walking Vehicle Project, dedicated to a passed science teacher. Read more

Walking Robot / Vehicle Project

Progress can be found here.

I'm building a robot designed to carry a human from one place to another with a bipedal robot.

Right now, progress is slow: Money is a huge issue.  Since a very important part of the robot just broke, I'm set back another 50-100 dollars on top of an already needed $200.

Thanks for your intrest.

I have no video of it, but it was a (very stiff) exoskeleton prototype.  Basically it was just a concept.   Main feature: -Gave user the ability to lift between … Read more

How to use a BASIC Stamp 1 (BS1-IC)?

I don't mean code, I mean setting it up physically.  Step-by-step instructions on how to connect a motor to a BS1-IC (on the carrier board).

I would like to connect 4 servos on the stamp to be programmed to walk on a biped robot.

I've tried looking EVERYWHERE on the internet.  I don't understand. :(

I have NO experience in using microcontrollers.   I really need to learn and I have no money for a BASIC Stamp 2 (which is more commonly used and easier to find instructions for).

Many thanks!

Lowest RPM of an electric bike motor?

What is the lowest possible RPM of an electric bike motor?  It seems to be the cheapest alternative to a slow gearmotor.  Thanks.

Would this motor be able to lift 150 lbs?

Would this motor lift me?  150 lbs or so?

Its for my walking chair, it will be chained to a shaft and the shaft will have about 150 lbs (NOT static load) or so of force to deal with.

 

Thanks :)

Low RPM Motor With High Torque Needed

I need a motor that has a lot of torque but the shaft looks like this:

I CANT FIND ONE!!  I need it to be cheap though... If anyone knows anything at all, please let me know.  Thanks!

P.S. Even if I have to slightly modify the motor, that's ok for me too!

VIDEO!!! Well, video is up.  I dont show anyone sitting on it because I'm the only person who knows how to controll it and I had to shoot the video, so I just let … Read more

BASIC Stamp 1 help?

OK, plain and simple...

I need a 100% complete tutorial on how to set up a basic stamp 1 (I know the BS-I is horrible).

 

Literally everything.  All I can find are BS2 tutorials.

 

Thanks so much

I need some major help! Expensive junk....

Alrighty y'all.

 

I am building a rather expensive but ambicious project- a walking chair.  Problem is, money.  This is what I have so far:
