    Issydunnyet (A mech)

    NOTE: Issy has been rebuilt, for Fire Fighting: See New Thread Here
    NOTE: See Issy2, being built for the 2010 Mech Warfare competition.

    Figured I would post a few pics and links related to my entry for mech warfare at robogames. I decided I might have just enough time, so I started building this Saturday night. Issy is built of a bioloid kit, with AVR/XBee control.

    After a few days of work, I have an AVR controller on board, still gotta finish the walking gaits on the AVR (and tune the existing ones, for the higher weight now that I have the camera/gun mounted).

    Are those lynxmotion brackets I see? I remember talking about that but I didn't think the holes would line up right. Looks pretty awesome though.

    Yes those are. The lynxmotion holes line up quite nicely actually. The new legs are huge improvement over the old ones.. it also means I have liberated some of my bioloid brackets from being used in legs.

    At this point it is really up in the air. If I do come it will be without a bot, but I am not even sure if I will be able to. I would say at this point there is a 50/50 chance. Are you going to be able to make it? I know you said you werent sure when I talked to you at Trinity.

    The xbee/avr control is now implemented, quick video of driving Issy with a joystick.

    That's awesome. I'm liking what you've done with the movement.
    There's something warm and classy about a vacuum tube.
