Watched the video and I really want to start making my own :veryhappy: . You got me hooked. I am thinking of designs. And I keep thinking of the robot on Ghost inthe Shell. I played the game once upon a time on Playstation and always played it 1st person view because of the duel guns. I like to learn more about when and where these take place. And just over all I want to learn all I can from this to make my own so one day I can compete.

Are there more videos?

I believe you are referring to the Tachikoma's (the ones with the annoying voices).

I absolutely love Ghost In The Shell! It has been a great inspiration for my robotic endeavors.

The futchicoma (sp) is very loosely what charlie my first mech was based on. I love Ghost in the Shell, and have watched the movies as well as all of both series. My wife hates it because I'm always suggesting she get her hair cut like the majors'. :)

I thought about mounting squidword's gun underneath his body given how tall he stands, but figured it would get in the way of his legs.

I also like the idea of using wheels for feet, and had that going with Aphid.

I have another mech warfare video on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/darkback2#p/u/3/rIfK5JFTftc)...

I totaly like to control "Second Amendment". That little guy is quick on the feet. Haw anyone on here but their bots online to where someone else via the web can control the bot in a off set area? I am game for that.

It is not for sale, but Robo Garage built one complete with the annoying voice.http://www.robo-garage.com/en/prd/p_14/index.html They also have two videos of it working.

SA;)

Given the right set up, this is possible but the issue is going to be the internet bottleneck from controlling the robot off-site (tele-operation). You'd need a fast fiber connection such as a T1 to accomplish this.

Sometimes your own network latency can be less than desirable, which makes using an even slower connection seem like a poor performance choice.

The onsite Internet at the San Mateo fairgrounds is atrocious, to the point of making tele-operation impossible. It's a cool idea that's been brought up before, but until we have access to some non-fail Internet, it'll be a no go.

Welcome to the forums btw!
