Justin talked me into showing my all-Gadgeteer based robot to the community. So here it is:
And a pan around Robo (I didn’t make up the name, my daughter did):
I hadn’t thought of showing it because it’s far, far from done. Alas my spider mainboard passed away and so it’ll have to wait until next year before I work on it some more. The intention is/was to have it help me out with home automation stuff.
One of the key modules is Justin’s servoTidy-module. And, not being paid to say this :-), I’ll say it’s truly the module I’ve been waiting for in order to hook up my servos. Check out the image of the module with its pre-soldered headers and power-in - just perfect for those of us who’re crap at soldering. So cudos to Justin for that!
I opted for the kit. Its a good way to get a head start. Modelled the body in sketchup and cut some polymer. its sturdy enough, but later ill make an in side structure to hold the components, theyre just thrown inside for now.
