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....

Hmm interesting, they are afraid of it...could be the Non living scent of machine, the walking dead?...same reason I can't stand human androids.They must look like robots.

Jeez 1500$ seems too high for that tiny Amazon Alexa bot, when we can do everything the same on our EZb or Arduino ARC robots far cheaper and bigger. Mine even can have Google mini on it so...

Well, as long as ww3 does not start I will bring the Terminator outdoors robot back to cottage! Be prepared for such events as Racoon smash up derby at Full throttle! Black bear wrestling T2 against Yogi black bear! Laser wars at night with T2 against me and my bro's using lit tracer BB's! Airsoft war! FUR will be flying and gears will be rollingxD

hi roborad

prizes has gone up for robots . alot off stuff will become very expencive .

Not for me, I use recycled stuff and junk lying around to create all my robots,bones for terminator are just pipes cut to size and painted, wheeled base carrier is just an old kiddy car sawed in half and then window lifter high torque screw motors for all wheel drive.Only cost is the sabertooth Hbridge board.

Warmer air today got me thinking about Terminator at cottage ideas, started putting back together with the original powerful outdoors monster motor wheels. The left side not straight,going to need more heavy duty front Axel. Great thing is Lidar can work outside in low level light or night.

That's one big spider!  I wouldn't want to step on that spider ; i would just shoot it!  That's bigger then the camel spider from Iraq.
They both wired me out.

So I re uploaded to my brother's YouTube the first security robot test as the camera and head tracking randomly looks left,right,up and down for any suspicious movements. This would trigger the script in camera setting to act on movement detected. Like Email my phone, call me ,record the movement, give ominous loud Cylon voice warning. Huge battery in back let's it run all night

I had a writer of true ghost stories saw my old video of the paranormal robot I started with at EZ robot, she wants me to send details of my investigations and photo video evidence! Ha ha for once somebody not laughing at me for using a camera ,sensor audio recording Robot in an old haunted area! Ya to bad I lost it, was really handy for what it could do...

Wow! My photo from old rad-paranormal robot. You guys at Synthiam have saved it in my posting history, Evidence of a huge ghost ball that in video attacked and disabled the EZb controller but I extracted the last thing it saw as the photo! You guys are amazing, I am sending the picture to the writer,she wanted to see it and this was the only place it still exists!..

Hey gang hope your spring time is going good. We survived a crazy tornado yesterday I was at the Walmart when lights cut off and howling wind past by shaking all the walls,scary!Anyway we are at cottage with plans to build the West World gunslinger from 1973 .we are going to make it partly Inmoov and body with special hardened carbon Fiber camo. Another fun project!

Aww man yesterday fell down a few stairs and bashed my knee against the concrete. Broke knee cap in half. My summer is toast now. All I can do is write ARC programs until doctors fix my knee. Really a downer.
