I posted this in the wrong section I guess, but here is a link to my newest bot - RoboRAD. I am combining a RAD 2.0 base and a robosapien.

RoboRAD project list:
MP3 with lots of music and nice speakers
EL wire neon lighting
Plasma Ball brain
Camera head on pan/tilt mount
Mechanised tow hook so he can tow a cooler/trailer around

and open to other ideas for cool functions!

I got the legs removed from Robosapien...he looks kind of sad. I think I am going to use the same 12V battery I used in B9 - it works great in these RAD bases and should give me plenty of power for some of the stuff I want RoboRAD to do.

I removed his legs and just set him in the RAD base for this pic, but it gives you the idea. After creating two bots wherein I had to build everything (arms, claws, etc.) I wanted to try out the EZ-B with one of the supported platforms - less building and more programming. I do want to make RoboRAD a cool bot - new paint, new functionality, cool devices. But I think this will be a fun platform to start with. I will keep you posted as I proceed. I think my next step is to remove the RAD labels and run it through the dishwasher. Then I guess I am going to lose the cupholder (like Josh did on one of his MechWarrior bots). More later.

Hopefully things will settle down around the house now so I can get back to my robots. I hope to finish up Gunslinger Bob and Robo Rad pretty soon. Then I will start my new bot and do some much needed repair work to Mini-B.

RoboRAD is now for Sale. He needs to be completed but everything is there and included except a battery. He has the plasma ball, laser light show, cool speakers, and is nearly ready for your next party. If you are interested in him, please email me at

What motors did you use to update the motors?
