Rover V2

This is my second rover, complete from scratch... tho its not entirely working smoothly.
Its made of paddle pop sticks, water bottle caps for the back wheels, and the chassis of a $5 barbie toy car... along with servos, arduino, sensors and a camera mount.
I replaced barbies car motor with a hacked 3003 servo, but its acting a little weird... hence the running issues. Will up date with a video soon. Just pics for now

5x5x5 LED Cube setup

Ive just finished putting together this LED cube, and running a little test animation to see if its working, which it is... except for one LED which is blown:( Ill fix it later. In the meantime Ill be attempting to work on a more sophisticated code... other than random flashing.

Random

Add ImageGot a couple of things coming along atm, (mostly LED projects) but need to get my electronics theory up first. So in the meantime, here's some random stuff.

New accelerometer. Heaps of dead tech, thanks Nat



















Spider bot prototype...made from icy-pole sticks, and some leg motion tests.

Rover up date

I hadnt touched this in a while and thought I would use a protoboard to enable taking this further. A little before and after.
I plan to update software and build a proper body for it as well. Will add vids later.



Bunny man

Just the rough out, but I hadnt posted anything in a while so...
The aim is to cast this in a low melt alloy.
