Andrew's Thoughts

Robotics Need to be Made

May 24, 2011

Because of makers faire, I now have the bug to build and make something robotic. =)

 

So I went into my shelf and took out the stuff I will need. With my ideas too. Pulled out the arduino microcontroller (I use that because the software is opensource).

The funny thing is that I keep my electronics stuff in these jewerly boxes. =) I found them lying around once, because my parents had recieved couple boxes of stuff from the neighbor. Since I love to look for random stuff, I was in there and thought these boxes would be cool.

Finally, I think I will make my Captain Rex into some moving robot. Now all I need to do is break him apart and add electronics guts to him.

Do you think I should desoty this toy to make him into a more powerful robot? Or just let him live and go and build the whole thing by myself? =)
