You may or may not have seen the documentation of my omnibot build (B.o.b. - Bret's Omnibot), but here he is completed. Bob's Mods: Camera, head turning, right shoulder articulated, left shoulder, elbow, wrist, and claw articulated, sonar, lighting, EL wire accents. I am just working on him here with my joystick gamepad, playing with different functions. But Bob is ready to go - and thanks for the salt little guy.

without further adieu - Bob:

"liked" it ... the whole bot looks solid, great work.
Feel like he could give a good TV style "judo chop" with that claw:)

Very nice job bret!!!!!! Lookin' good!!!!!!! you ended up doing some of the same things I did on myOmni. EZ-B in the cassette draw. I was thinking about a black paint job trimmedwith gold. I ended up with silver overall with gold trim. I went through your build pics but didn't see one on how you mounted the head servo. Do you have any pics of the set up? I had got everything done accept for his head set up. That bot got put on hold for a bit when I went on to other projects. I wanted to use my EZ-B in another project. I will eventually finish him. Again nice build! Oh, I did some similar LED's in his front plate too. Rock on!!!!!

@Lloyd - Thanks! Sorry, I did not get any pics of the head servo. But what I did was to mount a piece of angle plastic across the bot (using hot glue) and cut a hole in it so the servo would just slip down into it. Then I secured the servo horn to to a flat piece of aluminum and mounted that to the head. I hope that is clear. If not, I can make up some drawings.

Very nice!

I think I follow what you did. However, like the old saying goes.................a picture is worth a thousand words.Once I get the head servo in I can swap in one of my EZ-B's and bring him to life. Thanks.

So do you have a omnibot.project omnifreak?
#16  
By the way, what did you do with the flashing LED's? Did you use EZ-B digital pins or did you create a circuit to flash them?
#17  
I used and LED chaser circuit and randomly placed the LEDs. Then I tied that to an EZ-B digital pin to turn it off and on. You need to use a TIP120 transistor to do this. I posted instructions on someone else's link but can't find it now.

Thanks for the response. I'll have to give it a try. Makes for a veryyyyyyyyyyyy cool display!!!!!!

Super cool robot.
Looks great black with all the lights flashing.
I need to get more EZ Bs to make more of my robots smarter.
