A couple of years ago, Jules got given a cheap toy robot, and it wasn’t long before it broke. He wasn’t too fussed1 and eventually let me tear it to pieces. My big plan was to use the bot as a platform for experimentation, but of course you can see from the dates on the ‘blog entries that it just didn’t happen.
- find all the pieces
- test the DC motor drivers and an Arduino brain to return Bingo to “feature parity”
- Add ultrasonic distance sensors
- Add an LED display to his face or body
- robot uprising
- Well, I don’t remember him being too fussed anyway. Which probably means his tears and grief at losing this precious toy (that he never played with) were brief. ^
