I loved the idea about modding my own omnibot so i found one on ebay and bought it :P
My initial plan is pretty basic, just put in some servo's for the head and arms, i have an H-bridge for the movement and put in a camera.
I bought it for about $51 and $64 shipping, but I ended up paying an extra $45 on import duties (which I think is ridiculous because it's not even sold anymore) I just got the box with my omnibot (it was shipped inside a burger king box ):Look at all those stamps!thank you!Here comes the headWhat a beautiful baby..
Fortunately, he wasn't that discoloured from the sun so I just washed him and didn't have to repaint.
Here's the entire collection of video's. Please excuse my poor English, I wasn't doing bilingual education back when I shot these:
I'm currently working on renovating him. He was very poorly glued together and his arms snapped off. I'm planning to release a final video before my visit to EZ-Robot in July.
