I've been out of the robot circuit for a while, but have recently made some new acquisitions that I would like to utilize in a project. I am looking for some creative ideas for new projects. My current "Useful Stock" is:
2 Ez-b v4
2 Raspberry pi 3+
4 hd servos
3 mini servos
4+ solid state relays
Lots of electronic cases(external hard drive enclosures)
Lots of metal and plastic tid-bits
Lots of foam and cardboard.
(I horde so much I thought about doing an online garage sale)
I have thought of creating a scratch built 1/3 scale R2D2, and have a garbage can with the right dimensions, and other do-dads which will work. As well, I thought of making some little "Desk helpers", being little enclosed robots which I could interact with, or add other functions to.
I now have a Flashforge Finder 3D printer and Solidworks, which has been fun experimenting and learning, and would love to try and incorporate. I do a lot of camera work, filming aircraft and photographing anything really, so perhaps the project could incorporate this as well. I also have an in-progress 4ft wingspan RC plane which could use some spicing up!
I leave it up to the community. What should I venture to make next? I will of course try making videos on the ideas. I am also open to joint effort projects.
Thanks for any responses. Having just come back to the forum, it seems to have certainly picked up in project quality and technicality! Great job guys.
