Step 7: Done

The little guy is merrily roaming my studio space and occasionally drumming on walls, file cabinets, and the like.

This was a really fun project because the robot appears to have such personality.  I am indebted to Frits Lyneborg for his original Yellow Drum Machine, which is true genius.
<p>How much would this cost? and how long did it take you??</p>
Sorry for the late reply....I've been a bit busy and out of the country. I reused a lot of parts I had originally put in other robots. I would guess that it could take 20+ hours if all goes well. And I would just really guess maybe $80 to $100 if you had to buy everything. <br>
<p>I have the issue of MAKE the original yellow drum bot was featured.</p>
I can post the Arduino code if anyone is interested.
interested?!?!?!?! of course, i've been looking for this for ages!!!!!
That's all kinds of awesome!
What an adorable little robot! <br /> <br />Great instructions, too - thanks for all the videos. :D
Thanks. I agree that he has more personality than any other robot I've created.
