The Crew

I was tidying up the office today. Snapped this pic of the kids.

Plans -
Omnibot #3 - Newest Omnibot I have . Currently un-touched. Thinking no dome mech warrior.
Omnibot #2 - Mr. T. Going for paint (Black) very soon. Need to finish off arm movement.
Hasbro R2-D2 - Almost complete. Needs a camera in dome and sonar.
Wall-E #1 - Complete. Still tweaking script.
Robosapien - Need to finish jet-pack (cover for EZ-Board). It has a frick'n laser beam.
Roomba Rover - Needs camera. My son's robot.
AR Parrot - Still working on my flying skills.
R2-D2 - Currently being overhauled and re-painted.

Missing:
Omnibot #1 - Pee-Wee. Getting his arms setup. Going for paint (White).
Wall-E #2 - Currently in 100 pieces.

So many things to do. Hoping to work on them this long weekend.

Hey @lumpy I've seen your super real R2 unit a few times now and I was wondering, about how much does it weigh fully assembled? You've a very handsome family, by the way.:)

Last guesstimate was in the 170-180lbs range (3-12v-9ah batteries). I'm adding an
Optima 12v car battery which is another 43lbs.

Takes 2 people to lift and move around.

I'm currently upgrading the dome electronics, repainting all my blue parts, and finishing
off the EZ-B upgrade. It's much easier to do this when he's in pieces.

For now the EZ-B is controlling:

Foot Drives (Sabertooth 2x25)
Dome Drive (Syren10)
Periscope Lighting
Life Form Scanner Lights
Life Form Scanner Rotation
Emergency Stop Magnetic Switch
Sparkfun MP3 Trigger
Sparkfun MP3 Trigger In-Use (ADC)

There will be a tonne more for it to do for servos down the line.

The family keeps growing!

Melvin on the left, then Test Bot, Robosapien, Wall-E, Roboraptor poking his head through, Jarvis, Mini Robosapien stood on what's to be yet another PC for Jarvis to use for certain tasks (making it 4 different PCs to run Jarvis), then we have Omnibot waiting to be EZ-Bified stood on top of another Omnibot mint in box:)

My nephew calls this room my robot room, it's supposed to be my office but robot room sounds better:D

This room hasn't been tidied! And the pic was from the IP cam
