In the spirit of the "free stuff for bright minds" and DB's generosity, and also influenced from a RC forum where someone built an RC plane then shipped to someone in a different country to fly and then they shipped to a different person until it eventually goes around the world.
Would anybody be interested in doing a "community bot" where as one person provides the base and then ships it to the next to add "brains" then to someone else to add sensors and someone for programing and so on and so on until it is either done or way to heavy for the first base?
I am not so much speaking of a competition bot but rather something that would be cool for "Makers fair" or for the Trossen booth at Robo Games. Probably should sort out what it would/should do before getting too far along.
Granted it would be expensive to ship from point to point, if not right away certainly later on, and there would always be a concern of damage in shipping.
But, I would incur the shipping and supply the base to get it started.
I have two fairly robust 12v motors, a 2'x2' alum plate, a 12v gel-cell, a saber-tooth, and wheels to get things started. It would be a rolling chassis ready for the next step.
So, is anybody willing to step up?
