some pictures of the misery

A project log for R8-D8 - a distant relative of R2-D2

a 12cm radius, 3d printed R2-D2 with some motors, servos and blinky stuff that follows lines, persons or just drives around via bluetooth

Here's R8 upside down on his neck, with the controller connected to the arduino and the motors over a Molex connector I harvested from my PSU build.

A close up of the "flying wire" perfboard hot-glue mess. Yes, the power cable is twisted, but only the colors, since GND is on the first pin of the pin header.

Quite helpful, a sheet of paper telling which pins from the arduino are connected to what or to what purpose.
