wow! theres a lot to your claw. is that gear for giving your claw more grabbing power(torque)? Your claw is interesting.

I love it. It's living proof that necessity is the mother of invention.

We assembled a beer bot with Revolution today:) Sadly, ours is no where near as cool! Man your robot is my favorite:D (not just because it brings me beer)

RobMcc,
That is an amazing robot.
How do you make it track so straight from script? I observed you used several speeds.
My Irobot platforms, Create and Roomba, always have a slight ARC in straight movements.
If I use faster speeds, the ARC is minimized.
Can you share your script?
Thank You

Hey Steve S,

As for my script needs a little clean up but here is a sample to get the Roomba to go straight. Although running on carpet is totally different. lol
Good luck hope it helps.

Thank you very much. My Irobot platform tracks straighter with your script.
I added script to voice commands with good results (forward, reverse).
By adding the slow speed first starting forward, it also cut down on the rocking (less whiplash).
Your video was excellent.
The EZ Robot community is great.

Wow. This is cool. Have not had much time to advance Brewster much but this little blurb may have just inspired me to add more features. Thanks to you guys at EZ-Robots I have a few more ideas that I might try to implement. Thanks DJ for posting this. Just a side note I drink all kinds of beer not just Keystone.

@RobMcc I also wanted to say congrats on getting published! When introducing new people to EZ-Robot we like to talk...ok...brag...about projects like yours that are created by the EZ-Robot community. We love getting published ourselves but it makes us even more proud to see the community getting the recognition it deserves! I have a feeling we are going to see a lot more community projects in blogs & magazines in the days ahead:)
