What is a ROBOT?

Hi,

I'm so excited, and FrankenBoB, too. Isotope has sent me 3D printed BoB parts and a cool name badge from Canada. Thank you so much, Vadim. This time I need to pay you the beer at Campus Party.

WhiteBOB - preview

This is WhiteBOB, my member of the BOB family. Because I have no access to a 3D-printer this robot is build from polystyrene sheets (3 and 1mm) and a piece of PVC corner strip.

BoB's and filament

I love the invasion of the BoBs! Like a herd of little boxy Android droids. Although I don't have a 3D printer I was wondering how much filament was used to make one of those guys. More that I was interested in the cost involved as to have a better idea on how much to offer someone to make a BoB for me.

Sorry if it's mentioned in a post somewhere, I didn't see it.

As I discovered "Bob" I had purple filament in my office 3D printer. Well, i thought it would not make it to the robot section since I am not having enough time to … Read more

Good Robot Controller?

Ok I am planning on building a "small" humanoid robot that can has computer vision and can do many tasks. I am planning on using a small onboard computer to do all the processing so that it can be autonomous and reduce the need to have another computer on for it to work. Anyway I am looking for a small, not expensive, and easy to use, some what powerfull small computer or single board computer that has usb ports,can run off a small battery and can run lunix. I am thankful for all suggestions.
