Bracerbot Beta

Walks around sends data from multiple sensors via bluetooth then sticks to arm

My first quadruped, I wanted to make it special, so after you finish gathering data robot will come to you and will wrap around you arm as a barecelet (see video). Still need to programm walking and data sending via bluetooth, perhaps I will make an android app for it.

*Update 18.9* spray-painted legs to black, finally started to program some walking. Currently I'm working more on gait and I would like to create processing application for him.

*Update 28.9* I have written small Processing app for bot using controlP5 library. Also data obtaining now works, lags on the app are caused by screen capture program.

...this bracelet feature is very unique. Reminds me about the creations of Q. Well done.

Thanks :) His creactions are my favorite things in Bond movies

Cool project. As soon as I saw the picture I thought it has pose. The selfmade board is great and I can't wait to see it walking?
Are you sending the data via bluetooth yet?

Thanks :). Personally I don't think it will walk nicely, because of 2 DOF legs. I wanted to make 3 DOF legs, but I haven't got money for additional servos and 12 servos would be too much to wear I guess :D. Currently I'm controlling deploy, retract function via bluetooth, but I'm kinda lookind into java and programming android apps in eclipse so maybe I'll make android app for it.

Braclet Robots! Forget terminator!

The bracelet idea was genius. More so than Q, it reminds me of something from a cyberpunk movie where the cops would have something like this on their arm and throw into a room to scout.

What are you using for your Bluetooth radio on the robot? I've been looking for a cheap alternative to Sparkfun's modules.

Thank you :) Guess I have to see that movie. I'm using 10 dollar UART Bluetooth module from ebay

Great idea with a lot of potential. (collected). I like the idea with the batteries in/as the legs, it gives the robot a special kind of style. OddBot's bipeds got the batteries in their feet :-)

Thank you :) This feature was one of the first on the list, spares space and robot is balanced, only problem was wiring :D

That's not robot. That's baby alien attacking your hand!! Hahaa..
New idea is what the most count!! Great robot!
