Question

I saw that last year somebody had built a wheel chair robot and I am having trouble getting around in this new Forum. 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....

Oh ya for sure police in China have more sinister secret motives to gather data on the population. if they all looked like terminators ,the population would not trust them.Still I would laugh if I saw one like a walking pylon tailing me down the side walk!

Oh yeahhhh! Actually just chilling out with the A.C. and a beer in the R.V. here at the cottage. Programming a bunch of scripts for the terminator to seek out red balloons outside and terminate them with his electronic pellet rifle. I will be using an 8 channel relay I bought to activate pellet rifle getting signal from the Latte Panda running the EZB's. should be a blast! Had fun downloading about 40 Arnold Terminator movie MP3 Quotes that it can random;y spout out while shooting at balloons (EZ camera set to search and move robot to balloons) Just got to get arms and rifle back on and mount 7" display to his back for better room.His voice TTS speech can only use default microsoft voice with Latte Panda windows 10, which sounds lame but when I use Mobile cell phone on the mobile EZ Builder I automatically get the cool Google robot voice TTS instead, sounds more Terminator evil!

Not to worry Nomad I keep it on a leash so it does not escape in the night!

So I am very impressed with the EZ camera performance to do basic color tracking ,it is bang on accurate for red color even in low light indoor condition! Now the Camera is mounted on the robot but I should put it on the BB Auto Rifle so Terminator can actually hit targets the gun is pointing at. This was the successful test I did in the R.V. I am using both a humpty dumpty chip bag in the background as a red target or my Mouse with red light for tracking test. The new 8 channel relay gets signal from EZB and activates gun when ever red target is tracked it scared me the first time even if the 300 BB's are not yet loaded in the clip magazine! The air is still loud from the gun! Next step is to buy some red balloons for outside and program the script for robot movement tracking/camera.
