Hello, I'm wondering if someone could give me a little advice as i'm totally new to robots and funds are very limited. Here is the story...
I saw a little robot on youtube called cosmo, he seemed great, except he very small and works on android and is a bit pricey and I don't have android.
I then see a robotis Darwin thing and was amazed till I see the price omfg!
Then I see the jd robot, but can't afford and didn't really like the look of him.
Then i see a vid with someone using a 17 dof robot( i dont know what dof means but it was cheap and looked cool) and he was using cheap servos with an ez robot brain although the brain is my computer if i read the thing right.
i have a friend on secondlife that keeps telling me to use arduino cos she bought a kit and dont know how to work it.
so, i have a couple of robot questions..
1, could an arduino with wi fi use my computer as a brain to save on costs
2, do those cheap servos on ebay actually work (MG996R it's what the metal skeleton thing wants)
3, would it be possibe to make it act like cosmo, cheeky and troublesome.
i have done security work so know about pir sensors, vibration detector, soldering iron, and meter and did get a cisco ccma once.
i'm used to working with 12 volt but i can adapt.
p.s. sorry if i'm rambling, i been on the homebrew beer lol, and the guy on here making the full size B9 robot OMG it's awesome! it even powers down when you pull the key thing out.
