    Robert the Robot!

    Say hello to Robert!
    Recently I have finished the hardware part of my RoboGames contestant, Robert.
    Its a modified RoboNova with 18 DoF.
    Its a bit heavy on the top cause of the two extra 5498s so it falls often...(a bit of a problem for kung-fu), but I'm planning on adding a gyro.
    Here's some pics:
    Also, I was talking about getting that zigbee controller.. well, here it is

    Hey Nice brackets...I have some other parts you might find interesting. I had Gyros on Bheka and have the modded sholders.

    I'll bring them to RoboGames.

    Re: Robert the Robot!

    Can we get some more info on what Robert does? What are the tubes at the end of his arms? Which competition will he be in?
