Let's Make Robots!

Toy Robot for my daughter.

drives around until it hits something, then you pick it up and laugh.

Simple wirecontrolled, some stuff I had, 2 switches, batteryholder, Tamiya twin gearbox some wheels and networkcable. Screw it all together and my daughter got a toyrobot.

2 pieces of fiberglass was used for the "controller", the top one is not in the picture but was added so that she wouldnt be able to touch the wiring.

Since I lost the motivation for my own robots, I kickstarted myself with this little project, it is good to complete something to get back on track with the bigger projects :)

1hour later the batteries run out, she puts here toys on top and drives around, its interesting to see that the Tamiya twin gearbox can push around quite much weight.

Do we not all build our robots for our kids (or grandchildren like Dan M)? Admitted, my 2 months old daughter has not much interests in robots now:P

Cute. I find my own kids can be great at motivating me. They will try something, but then they always want it to be able to do more.

Thanks, I am thinking about buying her the Lego Mindstorm kit when she stops eating the lego instead of building it ;)
