This project started with a Robot-shaped tin into which I added an Arduino, two 5v steppers, batteries, and a speaker all mounted on a balsa wood 'sled'. The project was built on a Christmas Eve, but since it looks like a boy I named him stEve.
Bought the first Robosapien as soon as it was available from my local store. It wasn't long before I had opened it to see how it worked. He was turned into an alarm clock by adding a PIC microcontroller and LCD to his chest cavity.
Designed and built a set of 6 robots built for a workshop entitled "Arduino with Motors". The robots are made from laser cut acrylic and host two 5v steppers, their driver boards and an Arduino UNO with a breadboard.
