My Project Jarvis

I know I should finish Melvin before starting a new build but Josh's Jarvis has inspired me to give my JARVIS a physical form.

Some already are aware that I already have a JARVIS like system installed in my whole house which carries out a multitude of tasks from being an automatic PVR (like Tivo but better), controlling the heating and hot water system, controlling lights... too much to list really but one day I will attempt it.

Anyway, since it doesn't currently use EZ-Builder or an EZ-B I haven't posted much about it on here, but that's changing for 2 reasons...

1. To inspire you guys to open a can of awesomeness and
2. Because finally JARVIS will become a real robot rocking an EZ-B.

Basing the design around a RAD V1 robot

So far all I've done to the RAD is stripped it down - why they soldered every connection is beyond me!..

A lot of the choices I make on this project will be chosen by JARVIS. I will be adding some scripting so that I can ask him things like "What colour do you want to be?" and he will choose... this should make it interesting:D

Like I said, his brain is existing and has been for around 2 years, with new features being added all the time. You know what, let JARVIS tell you himself a little bit about him:D

Excellent job Rich. Thanks for sharing your progress. :)

Rich you are a power house of ideas. I will be using many of them in my build on Questor. Keep up the good work.

Thanks :)

As always, here's the protoboard layout for the LED circuit. 3 pin header connects to EZ-B with jumpers (you could solder wires direct if you wanted).

Throw a resistor between Vcc and an empty track (there are 2 there) and then another LED between that and ground and boom, you have a power indicator too.

How simple is that!:) Pure wizard idea! Richezmon itor! ...used by all..thanks for the generosity! .....A mere glance will indicate the power state....I am thinking a small buzzer for those who are not in the same room:)

What happened to Jarvis?
He has so much potential!

This one was shelved, at least for the time being. It may make a come back if I get more time but other things have taken priority.

At least the physical robot is shelved. Jarvis still runs my house.
