My robot is a sort of fun test bed of some ideas I've had kicking around in my head for a while. It is remote controlled with a TV remote, and uses a Basic Stamp for smarts. It can move forward and backwards, turn, rotate its head, make sounds, and flash its eyes. It's made of junkbox parts, but could be built from new parts for about $100. It uses a Basic Stamp I to decode signals from an ordinary TV remote, and drive two H-bridges (using Radio Shack parts and a unique design). It also uses two "fried" servos for locomotion (the internal electronics are not used), and a third servo to rotate the head. LEDs form the "eyes" and a speaker provides the voice, with several sounds to choose from. It took maybe a weekend to build, but I'm still playing with the design. Pictures are available on my web site. The site also contains complete construction details, including program listing and schematic.
