I've read lots on the forum, and posted a hand full of times, but I thought it was about time I launched my first major project (well, my second really, I converted a wall-e, but I thought there was enough of those on here :)).
So here is announcing OmniMC, an Omnibot 2000 media centre
The idea is to make him all RC and to also house a Raspberry PI running RaspBMC as the media centre bit. I'll then add some speakers and maybe some under-bot lighting
I'm wondering if then I can control the whole thing with one of these:
Other than that, I'm kinda just winging it and seeing what other bits and pieces I come up with.
To start with though, I've done the usual thing of gutting him and sticking him through the dishwasher
So right now, he is prepped and ready to go.
I've already got my EZ-Robot kit, and a few components such as 6v battery
Power Sonic 6v Battery
Some blue replacement bulbs
My Raspberry PI (which arrived today) and I've just won a screen for his chest
Veba TFT LCD Monitor
While I'm waiting for some other bits, I've also been looking at making some replacement tires which you can see details of in one of my other posts
So that's pretty much the state of play at the moment. I'm pretty much a novice at all this, so I'm looking forward to the challenge. Lets see if I've bitten off more than I can chew
