We had a great time at our last electronics meeting finishing up and testing out our Sumobots! Here's a short video of two in action!
This Saturday, we are hosting an event in celebration of International Nodebot day.
It's Sumobot fighting time!!
Originally posted for Facebook, this shows the simplebot using the Captain Arguino Arduino board from www.podpi.com being controlled via AJFisher's UDP transparent bridge to Johnny-five over Adafruit Industries' ESP8266 "Huzzah" development board.
I control the bot using W, A, S, D.
Something we are working on for our next meeting.... I think it needs eyes that light up...
Neo, Emily and I built this following instructions from a special edition of Make:. We're going to build it at our next club meeting!
To me, this is a particularly amazing and useful tool for electronics enthusiasts.
Here's a quick overview:
I've been studying some robotic heads lately. I've saved some plastic bits, purchased some wooden bits and I've still got to get some fasteners.
Here's a fun video on the assembly of an animatronic robotic head:
