Rock em' Sock em' Robots Live Hack (Part 7)

I've always loved the look of the Rock'em Sock'em Robots game but absolutely hated the feel of it. My goal will to robotize the game. I'll be adding in Micro HDD servos for the punching arms and 2 mini gantry systems for the X-Y movement. I'd like the game to feel like a real life super punch out! I hope to add the capability to play with two players (USB joysticks), or against an A.I. opponent. I'd also like to incorporate the power glove in some way. While I'm not a fan of robot violence I do have a special place in my heart for friendly, non-destructive, competition.

Head sensors are now installed and working. Now to start integrating everything together: sensors. stepper motors, limit switches and servos.

Challenges still left to do:

  • Get the Arduino to show up as an EZ-B in EZ-Builder
  • Software for: Player vs Player. Player vs AI, and AI vs AI
  • Add audio commentary

I am curious to see again how the Arduino is changed into an EZB as My Panda Leonardo still won't do this for me,It is such a simple procedure and I still get stumped.xD
