Robot Steve My First Synthiam Robot


Skip to comments

Hey Everyone,

Here is my first robot I made since I got my kit couple days back. I am surprised at how easy it was to get going. I am able to control the robot with an N64 controller which is awesome!

Here are the features:

Head Wireless Camera with movement left right down up
2 LED Eye lights
Arm movement Down Up
Gripper Open Close
Ping Sonar
Bluetooth Speaker

I 3D printed the gripper arm designed by user jjshortcut on Thingiverse

Then I just cut out the body from mattboard and used hot glue to put it all together. Hot glue is nice and strong!

Upgrade to ARC Pro

Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!

Most excellent! Hot glue is amazing stuff. One more arm on the other side even if its not motored would be a nice balance....even if its matt board. :)
your right i should think of something. I think I will print a little arm with a holder so it can carry stuff.

Printing arms the shape of things to come (excuse the pun)
N64 controller? How are you doing this ?
Check out that little blue box on the table next to the robot. It is a N64 to usb adapter I had purchased a long time ago that came useful right now!
That's cool. I like the ps3 remotes the best I believe.
HOT melt is ok for easy to make robots,but i use mostly aluminum for a better bond and more professional look and design.
Also easy to remove the part without all that glue you need to scrape off.
