I started on my roborad it has rad base with a robosapien v2 body
i am making 2 different versions ,one is a rare blue robosapien with a red RAD 2.0 base
second is a white version i am going to paint and using rad 2.0 body
Still need to find more projects for my 3 RAD 2.0 ROBOTS I HAVE LEFT
I BOUGHT 6 robosapiens and one is a red chrome mark tilden robosapien version and another is a very rare BLUE ROBOSAPIEN v2 VERSION
Soon as i get my BLUE robosapien v2 version in will post photos
next project is FEMIRAD with femisapien v2 robot
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Unleash your creativity with the power of easy robot programming using Synthiam ARC Pro
took me while to take the black and white one apart,when i get the blue in going to be the same
i am thinking a white body and where the black was ,use RED and my RAD base will be blue
on the other ROBORAD V2 robot i am leaving it BLUE but making the RAD base RED
also have the same amount of RAD robots too ,mostly all for hacking except for one complete for restoration and display,same with 2 or 3 of my robosapiens,RED CHROME mark tilden version is one of them .
Whats great about using robosapien v2 version instead of robosapien model besides it bigger it that has hands not claws and maybe the camera inside can fit the bluetooth camera instead.
The power wires and many others rot to the point of no return.
I took out all of the neck and arm motors and used servos for the new arms and head I made.
I am working on controlling the leg motors to make the robot walk.
But getting a 3d printer may change everything as I will be making my own humanoid body from head to toe in 3d print and rebuild him the way I want him to look.
I wish they had made a large Femisapian as she walks nicer and looks very cool.
She makes a good friend for any robot over 2 foot tall. (Over 61 cm)
Her name is Jen.
I have all the machines except for a welder for welding aluminium,witch i am getting very soon
,he is very big 22 inches compare to 15 inch ones,but i like his hand instead of a claw.
he is my second robosapien v2 i bought,not painting him,going to use a RED RAD 2.O BASE
On robosapien models they use a cable to open and close the hand and in the design it doesnt open fully.
So i am designing my own design using the cable,i look at servo to pull the cable ,but all was too big or didnt have enough torque.
So what i found is very small 6 volt actuator that fits perfect and the stroke is perfect
Stroke needed to close hand is .75 inches and the actuator has .79 inches
torque is 220 inch per pound ,not bad
WILL post link and photos of hand ,and on the placement of the IR sensor in the inside middle of the hand,plenty of room and still the hand will grab any item including a soft drink can or glass.
The V2 hands are very cool, too bad the wires in the robot go bad.
I have a red V2 that once worked perfectly.
I am using an old white V2 for part of my humanoid.
Once I get a 3d printer I may just print the whole robot and add the servos to make him work.
only one robosapien v1 version and i bought a broken one to fix it
When i get back from long trip to china for work in week and will be my last day at work and i will have a lot of changes on my robots,will post my photos when i have them done about that time
NOW can be a full time ROBOHOLIC
I think some members are still in contact with him, they may be able to give you his contact details if you want to get in touch with him.
