Doombot V1.0

StorySkip to comments

Hello all,
Been here for a while now and I thought I'd share my project with you, DoomBot V1.0.
He's a big one, a little under 5 feet tall. I'm still working on the platform, haven't really decided just yet, but I did get 2 wheelchair motors. Nothing is wired up yet, I'm still planning on adding a bunch of stuff on it so we'll see. The arms are all dc window motors and a pneumatic cylinder. Comments appreciated!

Influences are T-600-800, Predator, Alien (I live for H.R Giger). I'm sculpting all the panels once all the hardware is crammed in. This is gonna have a real sick exoskeleton, both for looks and strength. See my website to get an idea. :D

Yeah I think I've seen what you're talking about...they were using a liquid cooling system not unlike what they use in cars, to cool the motors. Great idea.

For those interested, this is how I'm gonna measure feedback on the pneumatic cylinder:

I'm sculpting outer shells for the arms, and I'm installing the potentiometers on the joints. I can then use the GetADC() command to read the value and use it in a script.

I'm using relays to control the cylinder, powered by CO2 canisters, the same ones used for paintball guns.

Not sure how I missed your Doombot?
Very cool work.
I hope you get the chance to upload more pics.

Have not seen any updates with Doombot in long time ? Would love to see how it is progressing.
