Scarab Creepy Robot

StorySkip to comments

Some people say this is creepy... Others think he's cute. You be the judge:) <br />
This was a remote control toy called the Scarab. DJ has modified it to host an EZ-B with an HC-SR04 distance sensor for autonomous exploring.

Description:
This was originally a remote control toy called The Scarab. DJ fitted an EZ-B into the shell. Using the EZ-Builder software, it is now remote control, autonomous and has voice recognition.

The original HBridge was kept for the EZ-B to hijack. This allows the EZ-B to control the existing motors and gearset (including the pinchers!).

A mini servo was added with an HC-SR04 distance sensor for autonomous exploring.

Currently, the programming is a collection of functions:
- Voice recognition
- Remote control
- Sweeping Sensor for Autonomous Exploring
