Tutorial to make a bluetooth remote controlled 1980's retro robot, that I named Master Blaster!
I found this robot shell for cheap in china town the other day. It is plastic and cost me $9.99. Its original motion was to walk forward and flash its eyes. Not very exciting...
I added the EZ-B Robot Controller Board and some servos. The DIY robot is now remote control from my computer. You can modify a similar robot to do the same. Here are the steps :)
What You Need
1 x Plastic Robot Shell
1 x EZ-B Robot Controller (www.ez-robot.com)
1 x EZ-Builder software (www.ez-robot.com)
3 x Standard Servos (http://www.hvwtech.com/products_view.asp?ProductID=878)
2 x Modified Servos (http://www.hvwtech.com/products_view.asp?ProductID=877)
1 x Battery Pack (http://www.hvwtech.com/products_view.asp?ProductID=1206)
Hot Glue Gun
Small Screw Driver Set
I suggest watching the video first, before looking at the slide show. This will give you an idea of the order of steps. Your robot may be in a different shell, so watching how I build this robot will give you an idea of how to plan ahead. Take your time :)
Take robot apart. Use a small screw driver set and dismantle the robot. Be sure to keep screws and all the peices seperate. You'll never know what you may need, so don't throw anything out until you are done.
