Roborad - My Next Bot

So this will be my 3rd robot entry. While I am still working on B9, I have some down time and a new EZ-Kit on the way, so I decided to start my next project. A little different from both of my two previous bots, in this one I am combining a Robosapien and a RAD to make RoboRAD.

I removed his legs and just set him in the RAD base for this pic, but it gives you the idea. After creating two bots wherein I had to build everything (arms, claws, etc.) I wanted to try out the EZ-B with one of the supported platforms - less building and more programming. I do want to make RoboRAD a cool bot - new paint, new functionality, cool devices. But I think this will be a fun platform to start with. I will keep you posted as I proceed. I think my next step is to remove the RAD labels and run it through the dishwasher. Then I guess I am going to lose the cupholder (like Josh did on one of his MechWarrior bots). More later.

Should be prepped up for the storn and radb9 is almost together . Im excited to see what you can do. I know sam was using a wowwee robosapien as well but I have not seen it move yet.
#9  
Yeah, I'm anxious to see Sam's progress as well. Have not heard from her in a while.

I got the legs removed from Robosapien...he looks kind of sad. I think I am going to use the same 12V battery I used in B9 - it works great in these RAD bases and should give me plenty of power for some of the stuff I want RoboRAD to do.;)
#11  
If you want to work out a trade or somthing you know I have another identical battery:)
