Hey,im not doing much right now because the lack of money but I did recently build another robot named Tankbot which is a infrared tank hacked to have two modes:(1)which is what you can already do with the toy infrared controled tank is control it with the controler(2)The robot can be autonomous and evade obstacles with discrete components and sence obstacles using a micro switch with extender attached.I built the circuit from parts I already have on hand.I used one of Mark Tildens sumo circuits for the robots obstacle avoidance circuit.Soon I hope to build a few robots I have planned using discrete components and then move to more complicated stuff.Very soon!Hopefully next year I can compete in the Science Olympiad Robot Ramble competition for the second and last time.
