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....

@robo rad  I like what you accomplish , so do not treat this Virus as a cold, it is not, and it is dangerous.  I don't  want any of our synthiam members, friends to be harmed  by this.  take care.    Trudope is isolating himself so he doesn't have to work, and face a lot of angry Canadians.

Whole Europe is going to have a complete shutdown, all borders closed...all flights canceled, only food stores and pharmacies stay open!!
The virus spreads exponentially...so be prepared, stay calm and in good health!!
At least we are robot nerds, and will have loads to work on while being in quarantine!!

I have not done anything lately on the robot as I am packing up everything to move in a few weeks.Hopefully anyway. if trudeau declares national emergency restricting movement.that would suck. Sometimes i listen to alex jones because he mixes truth with highly entertaining fear mongering. The funny thing i heard today was about strict martial law coming.Robot soldiers popping from the ground to do crowd control controlled by the 1 percent, LoL! I wish , How cool to see some real Cylons and Terminators walking the streets!

We are already having those movement restrictions...well too bad we did not build our robots fast enough, so they can do the shopping or we can mind control them while not leaving the house like in Surrogates!!:D

Stay safe guys!! Lets get over with it...strange times!!

Well with all the shut downs going on at least I think most of the Electronics venders are still open online, I am now in my isolated area which I will no longer discuss but it is an area where wild animals such as bears ,coyotes and every other small to large wild animal will come around looking for food scraps,The lack of people here makes the animal population more brave.Also need better security from vagrants or the criminal element looking to raid empty cottages,homes that are all deserted now .My cylon robot will now just become a Low profile fast moving all terrain wheeled base with all types of camera surveilance. I am wondering about making my own heat vision camera to see people or animals lurking in the trees at night? Any one has done this for a project?

It has to be Dave, He masters exosphere. my mistake Dave has a B9 not a Dalek robot,  close enough.

I think it was a video from someone living near me in Barrie Ontario as I got a Facebook link from the Barrie community page.

Aha ha I'm back just because all this social distancing getting on my nerves It's all Fake you got like a .01% chance of dying I mean really ridiculous over a cold bug.I am upset because now I see Boston Dynamics selling their dog to police in singapore and 1 state in USA to deploy the dog in parks as a test. To holler at people gathering too close. Well I was already doing this with my Terminator last summer copy cats.LOL! ...you can see the link here...https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/08/tech/singapore-coronavirus-social-distancing-robot-intl-hnk/index.html
Not cool Boston Dynamics,I can't even get to my park yet as camp sites are still closed but my Cylon project would kick that dogs Butt!
#416  
Well I got banned from facebook again for a day.So looks like I'll be poking around here today.Just goiing stir crazy with all camp grounds still locked down.Total BS.My cylon project is still there unfinished.

Anyone watch that new StarWars tv show The Mandalorian? Pretty good so far just gonna binge watch that whole first season Today.
#418  
Awwww that Baby Yoda is just too cute! I'm betting this idea I just got to build one as a real moving robot has already been done? Most likely DJ has as, he gets all the same ideas first, LOL!:D

Just started watching it too! Yeah it’s pretty good, Robots sprinkled into every episode. I haven’t heard of someone trying to build baby Yoda, maybe you could be the first!

An amazing TV series for sure I would say much better than the last starwars movie!...Good to know I could actually beat DJ on a cool robot idea! I already designed it in my head,LOL! Ahh but DJ is really fast to build them too, so will see!


Well,that was just epic that last episode of Mandalorian,Cheers to the writers of this show! I would like to buy them a beer! That is saying a lot from me as I usually hate all new TV shows...50,000 channels and it's all Garbage...but not that show,Well done,I may give the whole series another go ,it was better than all the StarWars movies combined!
That very last scene I won't give it away but I have never seen a Black U.V. Light saber before,what an effect,Beautiful!

Hey Guys do you think this new Agility robotics Bot could be easy to replicate with a 3d printer? Because I have a feeling they will charge the price of a new car to buy one. It looks simple to replicate the legs and body and try to match to cheaper servos and an EZB,Would make a great Terminator,all I need to do is use my Terminator head I have here!
Oh by the way they have invented both the Light saber fighting Yoda and a baby Yoda robot
 so no point building one,they stole my idea ,I believe,LOL!

@Robo rad    that robot looks like it is made of Aluminum, the turquoise color parts could be made with a 3d printer if you have the talent, but the most expensive parts are  the actuators they have to be fast and strong. unless you have a large amount of money, ain't going to happen.
