Rock em' Sock em' Robots Live Hack (Part 2)
Note: This hack has been changed to Wednesday night due to a meeting time change.
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.
I will continue to tweak the hardware and I hope to get into some of the software with EZ-Builder.
