Robot!!

Please welcome the newest member of the family.


Thats my robot! Its an "Escape" robot with infrared sensors to detect objects in its path and avoid them. I have attached one of my wireless cameras on its back. That sends its view to the little receiver on the right that is hooked up to the TV in the back (thats me on the TV). I threw in the micron pen for scale.

Here is some video of it running. The first bit I made a maze for it, and the second half is me recording the TV as it tries to get out of the corner.

How big is that contraption? I never thought any of us from the robot club would ever end up building a true robot. We were just too far ahead of our time. But you know what they say, "The future is now!"
