Key Holding Robot

This crappy robot will roam around looking for keys. (Insert some key pun)

Similar projects worth following
I was initially inspired by this instructable: http://www.instructables.com/id/RJ-45-key-chain-and-rack/. I thought it would be cool to have a robot that lives in my entryway, and when it sees my face demands that I hand over my keys.

I haven't picked up this project in awhile, but I was able to get it to spin and pause until it detects a face, at that point it will stare at you until you give it your keys. At that point, it will wiggle happily now that it has your keys. 

I'll dig up the code and post it when I have some free time!

    Printed a mounting adaptor for the OpenMV cam: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1760940

    For prototyping, I put a long zip tie on the back and used that to hold it in place in the brass tube I had lying around. 


    I also used 4x zip ties around the perimeter of the platform to hold the brass tube in place. Had to put a bit of double sided tape to make it a little more sturdy.
