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....

Picked up a new Tracer BB Airsoft gun for half price since it was a display model,too good to pass up. Very impressive performance and speed. Will be great for putting holes in pop cans at the cottage and scaring all the Racoons at night knocking over the Garbage .They will be thinking WTF laser beams attacking me,LoL!

My right foot was still getting bad infection,in and out of hospital for special I.V. anti infection medication directly into my vein every day in a pick line they put in me. So still in a wheel chair,for now all I can do is use my Airsoft BB machine gun inside and target shoot the LiL robot LoL! Crossman Tracer BB's work best in my G&G gun and Tracer Unit. Gun can be programmed for 3 round burst which is way too cool!

Must be hell picking up all those BB's out of a wheel chair.

Ha ha ya Dave, but then I just used Terminator/ Roomba to vacuum them up,not really supposed to re use the BB's but I do anyway. DID Another BB target test with the Terminator using Full Auto machine gun blasting,tried aiming near bottom just above roomba where it is all hard plastic, worked good  ,next time Terminator will be moving around vacuuming BB's while I shoot it and it shoots back with hand Laser (Star LED).

So now I located some hard to get red Tracer BB's in the perfect .25 weight range. They will be able to shoot very straight and appear like red Starwars Laser beams in the night air at cottage! 1 robot could be fitted with a green Tracer beam effect gun and another robot shooting back with red tracer beams.

Red Tracer Testing with G&G Tracer unit and gun, first test normal speed second video shows slow motion how BB flys through air glowing red.Now can you imagine a big Terminator robot with Airsoft machine gun and a huge Cylon robot with airsoft machine gun out in a field at night searching and destroying each other with green and red Laser Tracer beams? THIS Would be the coolest video in all of YouTube history,not even kidding!:D

Well I'm going to head up to the cottage for the nice weekend weather coming, I don't think I will bring any big robots up there as I have a tiny car but I do want to get video of the red tracer BB's flying long distance out in the field at night,should be fun,set up some targets.

Ha ha nice, I located 1 available G&G Drum Mag in B.C. Canada which are also really hard to find now as the ARP 9 is a hot selling Airsoft gun and everyone trying to order the big 1500 BB Drum mag! Gives you unlimited Auto fire without too much winding. Mine won't get here until next week though, I'll do a shooting video when I get that in,here is a video of some airsoft action using this Drum mag combo with Tracer BB's. I am thinking about adding this setup on the Large Cylon Robot after I fix the ATV wheels for it...

Tracer red and green BB really look great at night,setup beer cans and Airsoft gun ripped them in half in full auto fire. STARWARS power LoL!
#718  
Nice, I just came home from the cottage and found my Airsoft G&G Drum mag was waiting for me in the mail box bin! Was delivered early ,a sale item ,as it was another display model I got half price! It is too loud to use in my house but will test it when I go back to cottage next weekend! This is a video some guy did showing how full Auto can shoot up to 1500 rounds continuously...

I had brought both airsoft guns old Terminator gun and my new ARP9. I busted a plastic gear in that old Terminator gun,8 years old,will need to fix with new metal gears.It gets really technical on upgrading these Airsoft Rifles with internal upgrades,springs,gears,torque motors ,tighter barrel bore etc...

With the new BB drum mag holding 1500 BB's inside, the ARP9 gun becomes more heavy something like 5 pounds! So not too sure that any of my robots can make use of it mounted on it's body. I may need to fix the old Terminator gun as it was light enough for HDD servos to manipulate, Aim. The Drum mag was definitely not a waste of money though, too much fun at cottage. INSANE rate of bb fire, endless stream of Glowing Tracers fired in the air looks so cool at night!xD
EDIT--- I may design a new type of Robotic aiming base for the ARP that auto fires at any movement the camera can see! ...Do I possibly have a future in military robot weapons?? LoL...I'm sure they already have reverse engineered Alien weapon/ Robots!

Oh my God, I had a really weird dream last night that all my Robots came to life and demanded that I give them some real jobs just like humans have. This did lead to some truly Bizarre dream sequences, I gotta tell you! Thinking about it, it actually gave me a new idea for A robot Youtube tv show using all my robots. I know people are already doing this for years but what I dreamed last night has never been filmed before, LOL! Since I am still indoors for the next 2 weeks on antibiotics for my bad foot, I guess I have the boredom and motivation to try this, This will be interestingly weird.....I have the robots and I have the CGI !

Speaking of working robots, I am annoyed they let this pizza delivery robot car slip through the cracks out in public,no steering wheel or foot pedals. DANGEROUS as hell,will run over dogs and kids I bet!

Some new summer vacuum cleaning with Terminator Roomba.It got stuck in a vent hole but the 1 sonar is really good most of the time and robot vacuums well by itself. I will be adding Terminator Pelvis and Leg rods to make it look more real.
#724  
Hey hope you all having a nice summer! I just saw this RC snake video,they are fairly cheap. Looks and acts so realistic, only 2 wheels at front ,should be easy to make a really large one using EZ bits and a couple micro servo for extended wiggle and surprise jumping up to attack. The one in video is small and battery only last 5 minutes usb charge takes about hour! I have a mini Lipo could last longer and add the EZb Tiny for better control.Just an update!
