I got a Developers kit for my birthday, and I'm still debate what I'm going to do with. I originally wanted a humanoid-style robot, but the servos most likely won't stand up to the weight. My final design is in the picture below. I went for the rover style robot with an added arm/claw. I however am still open to ideas. Here is what i would like to have ideas for:
Materials: I need something low cost and easy to work with.
Size: How big could the base be? I know I already have the dimensions, but the only DIY building experience I had was with LEGO Mindstorms. I would like the claw to be able to reach over the edge of the robot.
What could I use for a caster?
And just anything that might help.
Thanks and happy building,
