Thread: I have returned!

  1. I have returned!

    Hello again everyone! Sorry for my absence, I hit a rough patch with my health there for a bit.

    For those of you that sent me weapon system advice requests, I will respond to those ASAP.

    I just started my design phase on my bi-pedal mech. I will finish it hopefully by winter, but being somewhat of a novice with robotics, time will tell.

    Welcome back. I'm sorry to hear that you had a rough patch with your health, but I'm glad that its over with now.

    Can't wait to see your biped. Do you already have a system in mind for the brackets and such?

    Keep us posted!

    I want to make it as custom as possible, so I have some brackets designed that I need to have machined. I am trying to making it basic, yet functional.

    I also am about to order a Bioloid kit next paycheck to experiment with. I will keep you updated.

    Also has anyone played with the idea of using a Wii-mote(controller) to control your robot?

    I just took a look at Lynxmotions bracket system and I like it. I may go with that system and save some $$$

    If you go with the bioloid kit, it includes all the brackets you'd ever need....

    I was posting info on doing it a couple years ago, along with video and photos.

    Here's GlovePie: http://carl.kenner.googlepages.com/glovepie_download with Wiimote Support.

    This makes it trivially easy to implement wiimote support.
