A Place To Buy Robot Cases?

Hi Mates,

I'm a very bad fabricator and have been scouring the web for a robot case that would look nice in a contemporary high tech office / home and can't find anyone who sells cool looking robot cases. It just can't look like a tool chest with wheels. I've completed a mini scale of the autonomous bot with the rover chassis and I have the parts to build a larger scale but duct tape and dragging the components on the ground in a bin behind it won't cut it with my wife. It just needs to carry laundry and groceries with a basket about the size of a laundry basket. I've considered some bad-ass looking computer cases ($60-$120 us) but I'm not sure how to mount my wheelchair motors without it looking bad.

Much thanks,

Bill

If it is a large robot, you might look at car luggage carriers.

Here's one idea from Pepper's base that would be pretty cool:

3 wheel base

It would have a triangular base with two wheelchair motors for steering and one swivel wheel. The basket would be mounted on top.

Hhhhmmmm.... Re Luggage carriers, I'm looking them up now.

Thanks,

How about a large Pelican case like the 1550 or 1600?

Buy a luggage case and then go to harbor freight and buy 2 or 3 packs of foam mats. They are 3/4 inch thick. also buy a hot knife while you are there 19.99. Gently trace out the shape with the hot knife and use spray glue to adhere the layers , tada!

Have you looked at Zagrosrobotics.com? they have some nice robot chassis. I have a couple of them myself, and at pretty good prices.
