Remoticon: World Tour Robot

Explore a backyard in Germany with the prototype of my World Tour Robot during Remoticon 2020

The idea of my World Tour Robot is to build a camera equipped vehicle small enough to be sent around the world in a box. At the target location it will be connected to a WLAN so that live images can be transmitted to a Browser interface.

Become part of Remoticon 2020 by driving my robots during the presentation or send me an old fashioned postcard (see blog entry for details)!

Want to know how it works? Read the manual on:
and after that, have a test run in my RoboSpatium:

I am still improving the design of the World Tour Robot. The last iteration with RC hobby servos was a bit loud while driving around and the servos turned out to be not that reliable (especially the cheap ones). During Remoticon I will put a new version with stepper motors in my arena. If they perform well, I am a huge step closer to send out a first robot.

I will answer your questions during the live stream. More information about how to enter that chat will follow as soon as the technical details are cleared with the Hackaday team.

Time slot for my presentation on the live feed of Remoticon is:

Saturday November 7th, between 5:30 and 6:30pm PST which is UTC -8 or 2:30 to 3:30am on Sunday morning here in Germany

Drive my robots and so become part of Remoticon 2020

  • Romoticon rover drivers will get a postcard from RoboSpatium!

    Those of you that take the chance to drive the live view camera robot during my presentation at the live stream of Remoticon (5:30 to 6:30pm PST on Saturday 7) will get a postcard as a reward. I have done that for those spotting an Easter egg during this year's Easter holidays and it was great fun to get in contact with my audience that old fashioned way:

    And if you send me a postcard showing your project or the area you live in, it will be displayed in the arena that I am preparing for the show:

    Would be great to get your feedback the old fashioned way!

    If you think you are a bit late or want to save the money for the stamp, you can also send a virtual postcard to:

    What should your virtual postcard look like? Well it should be on picture (front side) and one hand written message (make a photo or scan of it), which is the back side of a normal postcard (use the template above).

    Thanks for participating!

Very cool, glad you'll be making a Remoticon appearance. Looking forward to trying out your rover.

Glad my robots were accpeted for the Remoticon. Great work from the Hackaday organizers so far. I don't feel left alone with my preparations. Must go back to my workshop and start my 3D printers for the mechanics of the overhauled robot design...

See you!
