Introduction: K-9 the Autonomous Robot Pet

About: I build robots to encourage others to do the same. I believe the future is in robotics and playing a part for the future is my passion. Check out my website to see what else I'm up too. :)

His autonomous programming prevents him from getting stuck as he explores his surroundings. A 3-D map of the environment assists in his decisions and movements. Programming detects human interaction and affects his activity. EMIC voice module allows him to speak. IR detection allows him to follow infrared sources (remote controls) or an IR infrared ball. Pager motors let his ears spin. LED's for eyes. Sharp analog IR sensor for distance on his nose. 2 Servo's let his head move up/down and left/right.

His brain is the EZ-B from the EZ-Robot Project. Available at http://www.ez-robot.com

Lots of specifications and videos can be found here: http://www.dj-sures.com/robots

    Very, very nice. Now someone needs to build a sonic screwdriver, and then a TARDIS.

    I got those already. Just would like to do more with my Sonic Screwdriver that recharge glow in the dark paint. (open Doors, hack through computers, blow down electronics)

    I have a suggestion for you... 1. Move to Cardiff and live in a tent near the fountain thing by the rift. 2. Wait for the Doctor to come to "refuel" 3a. Beg him for his sonic screwdriver 3b. If all else fails hit him over the head, take his screwdriver, leave a note saying your sorry but had no choice, and flee the country

    better version: steps 1 and 2 as before but step three is to attempt to stow away in the tardis, step 4 (if you can't stow away) is to knock out the Doctor and Rory and steal the sonic and step five is to steal the tardis and shag amy when you get bored. :D

    Did you get the idea from the TV show? And if you did, is this the old or new version of K-9?

    Who is your favorite? K9 also meets David Tennant as the doctor.

    sadly there are no detailed photos of the body. if i were to attempt an instructable, it would be denied due to lack of information.

    but! have no fear :) .. if you were to make your own, it would only be the body that you'd have to design yourself. since it is made with styrene, it is available at most hobby stores. or even online from ebay (which is cheapest)

    you can watch one of my other videos (Tamiya Bulldozer). that would get you the parts necessary to get the robot moving... and with a bit of electronic brain power :)

    good luck!
