<p>I have been kind of wanting to build this for more than half a year. Or is it a year now... I don't know how, and have very limited experience in the field. The most I have done is one of those robots on a platform that move when you move a remote. I did write the code myself though, with the help of my teacher. It was written in C, which of course would not work for this project. I am no longer in contact with the teacher that was going to help me with this, and there are no robotics teams near me currently. I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions? </p>
<p>Oh and one more thing, do you think I can do this with an arduino mini or something instead of building my own circuit? Or is that a necessary part? </p>
<p>I'm not sure if there is a need really, although I have had a handful of students and teachers contact me looking to make their own versions for educational purposes.</p>
<p>The first road I would try would be to add a sound sensor. Then you could set up 3 IR/Sound beacons in a room. The robot would receive a light and sound signal from the beacon and measure the time between the IR and audio to determine distance.</p><p>www.bosswallpapers.com</p>
saya sudah mebuat ini tetapi saya bingung bagai mana cara nya saya untuk memasukan data program dan bisakah saya minta data untuk memprogram pingbot? makasih
<p>ean man i wish i had one</p>
<p>Its tremendous<br><br></p>

thanks for sharing

when suggesting scavenging from old appliances a picture of the component would be nice if only to save us some time.
that is so cool is this going to be on the market or is there even a need for this?
I'm not sure if there is a need really, although I have had a handful of students and teachers contact me looking to make their own versions for educational purposes. <br> <br>As for marketing, well, I'm learning about the process, but I'm certain that this will never be made into toy that your going to find at the store. However, the kit bundle version should be available soon; it has been submitted to Club Jameco and is making the final rounds now. <br> <br>Thanks for checking out the project, happy you liked it :)
yeah I thought it was neat
that looks AWESOME, Where did the idea come from?
Thank you Jenson that's great to hear :D <br>The idea came from all over the place. For the look of the robot, the movie &quot;Batteries Not Included&quot; had a major influence. As for the actual robot, I'd seen several of these little picaxe robots, such as the one by Mikey77 here on instructables, and wanted to make one of my own as a way to learn Picaxe and li-po battery charging.
