The arm finished 5th in the science fair. I recently came in second out of 28 in a robot contest, that was for programming a BOE bot to go through a maze. What i am really proud of is that every one else was 18 years or older. I am working on a project, it is to make a humanoid robot driven by servos and it will use infrared sensors to avoid objects. The arms (if there will be arms) will probably be remote controlled. There is going to be a wireless camera for the head on the pan&tilt. Any way i'll keep you updated.

i'm 14 now and i finally know how to prgram in basic :)

i terminated the obstacle avoiding project because i want to do some thing else. i am now working on a robotic arm for a science fair. the special thing about the robot is that it is going to be controlled us ing gloves. it is quite simple when you think about it because it uses push buttons. each motor is going to have a forward and reverse circuit. i will probably put some LEDs just for show. If you have any suggestions please email me:


There was a problem with the gears in the six legs, so I decided to just us wheels. I am now looking for a good gear box.

I'm working on another robot. A six legged non contact obstacle avoiding telepresence robot. The camera is a wireless mini cam about the size of 5 quarters stacked on top of each other. The obsacle avoiding system is from my little brother's toy car. the robot uses 2 dc motors. I'm in the process of makining all of putting the gears in the plastic chassis. The plastic is from the stylish clear clipboards for writing notes. I will keep you up to date with my project.

I fixed the problem in my robot (it only goes forward and backwards) I made a cut in the chasis, so when it goes reverse, it actually turns left.

I just finished my robot and it is great. i wired a sound sensor with a walkie talkie and my robot is controlled verbally with the walkie talkie. the only bad thing is that it only goes for ward and reverse.
