This is my first Biped Bot using the Arduino Nano. Currently Mini-Max has the ability to detect an object in his path using the Sharp IR Sensor. He uses 6 SG90 9G Plastic Gear Servos. Runs on 7.4v Lipo. He is able to walk around and when a object is in his path he stops and backs up and then...

FOr sometime I have wanted to do a Wall-E robot and have seen on many other sites where people have done them. I found one recently that was missing the remote but in great shape. I have many ideas on the design for this bot and what components I want to use. I am kind of caught on that famous...

So this is my first real Arduino robot project. I resisted using the Arduino for some time other than using it as a signal source back to a PC from a sensor. One morning I woke up and just decided I am going to give this a try and see what it is all about. The only thing I can say about it is, I...

I have long wanted to take a robot from the 80's and do a conversion on it and bring it to life.

Robie SR. was produced by TOMY of Korea for Radio Shack. TOMY produced a couple different version of the Omnibot.

Robie SR. is one of those version of the Omnibot of the 80's....

I was going to build the ROFI biped walking robot... started printing the files from Thingiverse and soon found that I was not a fan of the design of the parts... I already ordered servos, so what to do? Then JeffRo showed me a link to a quadruped bot, and he started off building one of his...
