It's been a while since I posted, been busy catching up on back orders for IKON so that took up most of my time.
I finished Doombot's skeleton/frame and I took him apart to make molds so I can reproduce the parts in aluminum and carbon fiber and kevlar. Its gonna be one mean deadly machine.
Anyway in the meantime I created Dirgebot, a smaller, less menacing and simpler to program (less moving parts) machine that's somewhat kid-friendly (for me). I wanted something my kid can play with (she wont even go in the room where Doom was parked).
Anyhoo here is the progress. Depending on how this proto goes I may market this model as a complete, not a kit, but something that can be used out of the box with no guesswork. I'm looking for an EZ Builder programmer who can work with me, in exchange for stake in the future company. I recently established Bertone Industries, LLC and I have access to a warehouse and it will be manufactured here in the US using rotocasting techniques. Please contact me if interested here: firstname.lastname@example.org
. Thanks guys!
This still uses the V3 board and a webcam, alongside the W3 Iconia mounted on its chest. I will upgrade soon. Please be nice to us dinosaurs! haha
He stands at 3' 4" currently.
Testing the arm
Sketching the head
Nearly finished sculpt. I'm gonna make a tutorial for making molds and casting fiberglass panels. This head is gonna be produced in fiberglass, alongside the rest of the robot when the sculpting is done. Hope you all like it.
