I’ve been going to Burning Man every year since 1997 and this is the first year I’ve missed. I stayed home and here’s my closing set from my local residency @ Bassmint in Chico, Ca. 8-29-2014 :)
DIY Johnny 5 robot kit available.
The US$1,400 kit lets you create a fully functional model of the robot from the 80s movie Short Circuit.
The robot is made from Servo Erector Set aluminum brackets, custom injection molded components, and ultra-tough laser-cut Lexan structural components. The torso is fully articulated utilizing 8 x HS-645MG, 3 x HS-475HB / HS-485HB, and 3 x HS-422 servos, and our SSC-32 servo controller. By utilizing heavy duty polypropylene and rubber tracks with durable ABS molded sprockets the robot has excellent traction. It includes two 12vdc 50:1 gear head motors and the Sabertooth 2 x 5 motor controller.
The combo kit includes the powerful Lynxmotion Sequencer Program for PC. You can control the robot from a PC with the included DB9 cable, or use our DFRobot bluetooth/APC220/Xbee modules for wireless PC control.
Oh man I was obsessed with Short Circuit as a wee little bot
Jupiter structural layer cake
