Let's Make Robots!

Mr. General Robot

Well I'm officially starting work on my Mr. General robot. I just received the kit today when I got home and was thrilled to see all that was inside! Tomorrow I will start all of the soldering and assembly of the kit. I'll be modifying it quite a bit for the Mr. General Challenge. I just wanted to start this blog to record my building process until it's complete.

Things To Do:

Water Present Sensor?

I seem to have a lot of water on my floor... From accidental uncleaned spills or melting dropped ice cubes. My last bot went over un unseen puddle of water and guess what... it died. So I was wondering if anyone knew of a cheap sensor that could detect water or even a way to make one. Thanks in advance.

Next Robot?

Well I am not sure what to do for my next robot. I would love to build a UAV but it is very pricy like 500 dollars. I'm not quite sure what my other alternative would be but I would like an awesome new robot to build. Anyway, I'll do more research, even though I did a ton already and see what I should do next. So we will see I guess....
