Please don't laugh, I am very poor and the materials I used are all stuff I scraped together. Check my blog for a materials list.
Here are the first pictures of Trash.
Sorry for the cell phone pictures.
I'm gonna have to get something stronger then plastic forks and chopsticks for legs, they flex rather then hold.
Ghetto enough for you?
Trash uses 4 hitech 311 servos as the knee joints, and 4 generic continuous rotation servos out of cheapo paintball hoppers. I havn't started with any coding for him yet, but once I remake the legs tomorrow (possibly with pens, or more chopsticks.) I plan on making a simple walking gait. The hard part is going to be figuring out how to get the hopper servos to do what they are supposed to. They only have + and - cables, so I'm going to have to figure out how to reverse the current. Any ideas would be appreciated. Otherwise I'll switch them with the hitechs, and just have them rotate 360* for each step..
The frame is a frame piece of an old computer cd drive case, 2 strips of wood I found, the front cover to said cd drive. The whole thing is held together with a crap ton of zip ties. I ran out of black towards the end, so there are some colored ones mixed in.. The sole of a shoe that I found (found the sole, not the shoe lol) is what the Arduino is sitting on, to prevent it from accidentally grounding out on something. I plan on installing 2 cheap flashlights as 'eyes' tomorrow for looks after i strengthen the frame.
