Scratch App Development

Hey everyone, I'm back. I wanted to talk a little about an app I am currently developing for my robot. Basically the apl is developed on scratch.mit.edu, and is sort of a virtual version of what I want my companion droids to be. The version I will add to my build journal is sort of aimed for younger kids, but I am planning to make a more adult-suited version. 

The companion droids are basically like friends/mentors for people with disabilities.

Also, I will be making an app for a personal droid, nothing to do with the Alliance of Droids companion projects.

The Ultimate Guide To Guides On Making Star Wars Robots

Long time lurker, first time poster, so let’s kick this off as most do with a quick bit About Me (They still call it that, right?!):

I’m a long time hobbyist. Started out on some smaller projects when I was younger and, as they say, the rest was history. I mostly have films to blame for this: watching stuff like The Terminator (hence the name) and Star Wars when I was (probably far too) young fascinated me and I’ve kinda been hooked ever since. 

So! Onto my first post:

     What motivated this post was my review for the Pixy CMUcam5 Image Sensor.      Actually the motivation was some issues that I had trying to make an … Read more

Alliance of Droids - Companion Robot - Help needed!

Hello everyone. Just so everyone knows, I am an absolute beginner when it comes to electronics and that sort of stuff. I built my own R2-D2, but it wasn't motorized.

I want to build a companion robot for the Alliance of Droids - my charity. I was planning to use some Arduino's for the project, as well as a controller system.

I want to know the estimated cost, the parts I would need, and some more information.

If anyone would be interested in helping me, please visit my website @ www.allianceofdroids.com.

Thansk for your help.

Liam!
