Let's Make Robots! | RobotShop
MadProphet's picture


50+ years old and just getting into robots. Was a systems guy back in the late 90's-early 00's doing all sorts of automated builds and installs. Lots of experience with VB6, some COBOL, C, InstallShield, DOS and networking. 

Everything else is gonna be new. 

Bought some RPi's (5 of the Pi3b and 1 Pi2b+) plus a few Uno R3's. Lots of boards, HAT's and other stuff I thought I would need. Still sitting in wrap. 

Rover 5 platform (4 motor, chassis only). Wanna make this autonomous using pan/tilt and SR204's initially. Then add PixyCam and eventually a LIDAR system. 

Also have a MakeBlock basic mBot and blanked tracked system.
