Thank you Jack and Jude. Absolutely. If it had gone together well the first time I wouldn't have hacked the servo into a geared servo and at least now I know how to build the next one. Guess it WAS a good learning tool.

Thank you! My last robot project used 7 servos and I swore I would never again work a project with many servos as it chewed up a couple hundred hours of programming time. Used only about 25 hours programming time on this one. Simple is better. I plan on building another one like this using standard servos so it can carry the battery packs and Arduino - untethered.
If you don't have exactly the same size materials as me it wouldn't do you much good. I just wanted to give a general idea of the robot and I think you can see from the pictures that it is just 3 servos connected to each other so that they are all on the same plane. You can do the same using just about any material for the legs: rods, wooden strips, whatever and using whatever dimensions you see fit as long as the legs are not so long that the servos will not have the power to lift the entire robot. Each of my legs are about 8 centimeters long from servo to servo and so are the arms. This instructable is more about fabrication that it is putting a kit together. If you have specific issues or problems, I can address those but mostly you are on your own.

That is true. The sound drives me crazy after a while so I shut it off. Will have to put an IR on it so that it just starts up when someone walks by, like my indoor wind chimes.
Haha - that is what I felt too.

Sorry but this is all there is. I don't have this circuit anymore; left all that stuff behind at my last school. If you have a particular question I may be able to help though.
Yes it requires soldering. You need to look at the schematic and it will explain where the wires go. If that is too difficult then you probably need to begin with a simpler project. This project does require some ability to understand basic electronics and programming.

At least you got it. Some folks got almost irate with me - guess they never heard of satire. Or perhaps they were being satirical. Hmm.

Sorry to reply so late. I think you would have to use a sonar module so you could find the nearest object to you. Dont think you could do it with PIRs. Just guessing though.
Thats an interesting idea but I have no idea what would happen. Unfortunately I dont have this project anymore to test it out.
Sorry I just saw your comment today - don't know where I have been. But sadly I don't have this stuff anymore or even the code. Hope you got it worked out.
Thank you, hope it helps. I'm not really an expert on this stuff but it was available elsewhere and I needed it at the time.
Yes a video would be great.
