Wheeler Chair Robot

I saw that last year somebody had built a wheel chair robot?. My idea for the new Robot will be as a stage mascot that can also pretend to play the drums on stage. My brother has a live Metal band every Saturday night and most of the time we have trouble with no drummer showing up. We end up using a Drum machine instead with the 2 other guys on real guitars and singing. So Terminator will be able to move around and substitute behind the drum kit with the Live drum machine signal activating terminator arms at the drums. Also need him to move around in a wheel chair , so is anyone out there that has done this wheel chair hack, looking for suggestions on power/motor controller connections etc...should not be too hard just larger than I'm used to building. This is a youtuber that bought what I just bought,takes a month to get from China and we are building the rest of the Endoskeleton to integrate in wheel chair....

He'll yeahhhh, come with me if you want to live! 
Here is part 2 of the Drone Tracer BB Test auto firing that I promised with voice and a few effects at the end, Was fun to do,only took 30 minutes but it's better with the edits. Now I need to really attach the Tracer equipment BB's for the Cylon/Roomba and start programming the Camera scripts to really track and destroy target Drones.
Ha ha , just saw this clip on YouTube,I must have subconsciously copied that idea in my vidxD Looks cheesy now but as a kid it was the best TV ever!
That was one of my favorite episodes, too bad the original series ended  like that.
Ya just when you think they improved the 1980 series,all goes to hell, that's the way all the best scifi shows usually go. Was happy for the new series 2005 as it went for many seasons and TV movies. A new one is planned for next year let's see how that goes. I would be just happy if the robots talk in the next one!

Here you go,this is what I was talking about. The USA battling over similar bills. There is a petition out I signed it they want 50,000 signatures and already have 30,000.You think Our joke of A prime minister will even look at it? Not very likely. Same with that joker Biden, he has no clue where he is most of the time.I may soon need to go on a deleting spree. That's deleting my pics and comments,gotta be careful as the Liberals take everything we say and twist it out of context.
I think in 1999 the Famous director that was making many super hero movies was to remake the movie Battlestar Galactica. Then 9-11 happened so no war movies would happen.was same for this pilot project Richard Hatch,when I see stuff like that it still motivates in robot building,the coolness of those Nasty Cylons (or Geekyness)!:)
I just asked the producer when he will release this short film.Said next month on the youtube channel he has, Looks like a really good story line,subscribe to see it first.High hitter Actor was hired to do this!
Hey wow, just noticed I have had 10,000 views on my on going Terminator Project which also morphed into a classic Cylon Project. Working on both at the same time.Many ups and downs because of Covid 19(the common cold really). I am no robot engineer or electronics expert . Just a former street racer with many rebuilt muscle cars of the early 70's Sold them all as the  hobby continued to get more expensive since the late 90's when It was cheap and fun to do and cops really did not care about the Midnight street races.Try buying a Holley 800 CFM Double pumper now,forget about it! I used to get 2 for 300 bucks! I still love watching the sport on discovery channel, but those guys are all rich to be able to do it on street Outlaws. Moving towards Robotics was not as expensive and is also on the border of a new Fronteir! Hopefully this silly little Robot blog gives you all some creative ideas to move the hobby forward. I will continue updating both the terminator and Cylon after I get some recovery on my bad foot medical problem. Taking a rest for a few weeks. Will be back with robot action at the cottage with Night time robot battles using the Glowing Tracer BB fire.Cheers to you all, And my friends at Synthiam and EZ Robot!:D
Well looks like no cottage season opening on time this month..I just heard that dumb fat politician Ford has decided another lockdown for 30 days! I am outraged! Like I lost many friends to just being *smile* last year, I said it has nothing to do with that cold 19 whatever. Trudeau is part of this great reset the Elites are forcing on the world. I told many people last year the Lockdowns will never end! Here I am proving the point a year later. Summer will yet again be a complete wash out until enough businesses fail ,enough jobs lost ,all of us at the mercy of a Nanny government, Forced poison vaccines etc...ya I,'m so done with this B.S.
Was short but sweet,great final ending!
I always liked this guy from the original show. Cool lights.

Right on Perry, I think that would be an awesome robot to build and even a great Halloween party costume,sure would Freak people out!xD
I was already thinking next Halloween will design a way to wear the Terminator head on top of a leather jacket appearing 7 foot tall, just have my real face hidden below the neck of jacket with small holes to see.
Well getting out of foot surgery gives me the nice excuse to go shopping around in the disability/mobility wheel chair store.For me it is like a robot wheel base store! Likely only need a month but getting a good look for robot platforms and Lithium battery choices of high volt big Amp/hours!:p
So nice to be back home from hospital. Dive back into Synthiam Arc!  I wish I had all these ARC skills to fool around with back when I was 14 and trying to wire up basic robots.kids today don't realize how good they have it! I just hope I am building this stuff to the ripe age of 109! Gots to keep eating Yogurt!xD
So much of the Ronald D Moore Battlestar Galactica in the early 2000's was hard hitting drama and awesome camera angles with special new effects.I still had a battle with his wife at the time on the Sci Fi channel community page.About the Silent Cylon robots,mute,no voice,pissed me off to no end. They did finally have 1 show near the end where classic cylons attacking in an old Raider ship did talk. Did I win? Not sure,LoL! Let's see if they pull the same silent robot shenanigans again!..
Very cool I just saw Ready Player 1 on the Sci Fi channel. The second time you watch, you see many things you missed. Just everything is in it, the box of Battlestar Galactica ships, The B9 robots, nostalgia posters,gorf on the colecovision. At end there was A Big track tank on the bedroom floor! Rush 2112 poster...everything we talked about last time on the Live hack night except for the Hero 1 robot,LoL!xD
With Ontario a total prison province currently,barely anything open,can't even find robot basics like wire.Mail system super super slow like 3 months to get a Part imported from States. Still waiting on my Air soft 2000 round electric mag for the Cylon to shoot glowing Tracer BB's.Meantime, for fun, going to throw a line laser on my Hex 6 Dalek to make it more threatening.
