Robotic Snakes on a...

Pretty soon the TSA will have a new threat to deal with...Robotic Snakes On A Plane! They can climb up walls, stairs, go snooping for people, get through a chainlinked fence, they're pretty much unstoppable. But most impressively is the snake from Hirose Labs in Japan, it's pictured below, and that mofo can actually swim.It's beautiful, and amazing to watch this biologically inspired robot move, check it out: Clearly these robots are going to be very agile and useful, some researcher used his to walk the ring down the isle at his wedding... creepy? Yes. Awesome.... also yes. Let's see how many uses of robotic snakes you can come up with! Go:

How do I get a start in robotics/electronics?

G'day, have been a long time lurker and finally decided to join, my question is how do I get a start in robotics/electronics would love to make some of the inventions on here but have no clue what they are talking about, any books I should read or you could recommend, or any simple cheap and easy instructables to get a start. thanks for your help

KNEX Robotic Controller

Howdy, What do KNEX builders use to control robotic projects.I am asking about the physical controller...do most fans use one of the hobbyist controllers (BASIC STAMP, Cricket, Arduino, etc) or do fans hack the RCX/NXT? Does anyone use the old KNEX controller "Leornardo" ? Thanks, Richard

iPad/Tablets for Disabled with robotic X/y plotter

HI all! I develop tech stuff for people with very significant physical challenges.  The iPad has been a great boon to those disabled persons that can use their fingers/hand to access it.  But this leaves quite a few of the people I work with left out. I wish to create a "plotter", similar to the old CAD/CAM plotters, with the movable X and Y coords that would be adjustable for iPad, and the Androids, Nooks, Kindle, etc.  It could be controlled, by the disabled user, by joystick.  When the destination is reached, they would press a joystick button and a 'pointer' (instead of an ink marker) would tap down on that spot.  I realize that many of these tablets require a capacitive touch and I have found pointers/styli, that seem to get around this somehow, so it's the robotics portion that I don't have experience with. Would anyone be available for contracting to do this? RJ :) rjcooper.com

'ServerBot'

I was inspired (and pretty amazed) at the ServerBot instructable that someone had made for the iRobot Create challenge (LINK). So inspired, in fact, that I would like to try to make one. The problem is, I have a low budget, only knowledge in Basic Stamp 2, and I have some, but not many, types of sensors. I am almost sure this is possible (even remotely, at least) with the basic stamp 2. I have some of the ideas for the coding in my head, and some idea of how to make it. If I do follow through with this, I will make an instructable on it. But I need some ideas. Is this truly possible with a basic stamp 2? Elaborate, please! Credit to the below picture goes to JoeCreate who made the robot (LINK).

robotic arm arc welder

Is it a robotic arm capable of arc welding feasible for a diyselfer ? I spotted some robot arms for cheaper than 200 $ over the web . Vantages for the operator would be no weld fumes breathing , no uv rays and such ..

Someone with skills in servos, robotics and similar.

I'm on the search again after a little break to see if I'll be able to find someone who could help me out. I'm looking for anyone will the knowledge in robotics, mechanics/Arduinos/Servos/Animatronics for a project I am putting together; a spider creature mask. It would have functioning parts (i.e. eyes, mouth and more) and I unfortunately lack the skills to do this part myself. If you are or know of anyone capable of doing this sort of thing do let me know so I can discuss this further with them. It doesn't have to be started immediately I'm just looking for anyone willing to give it a go when they are available. I'm located in Sacramento California. Much appreciated, thanks for looking.

robot motor question.

I would like to ask if what motor can you suggest so that our intended user can know that our robot is moving? our intended users are the visually impaired so our robot will help them to navigate. our robot is an obstacle detection robot thanks
