My First Robot

 
#1

Name : TALON ONE

Hello guys! The moment i saw the possibilities of the EZ Board, I knew that my robot can finally come alive!

I have no prior coding experiance. Hence the EZ B will be my stepping stone.

I am building a Tactile Unmanned General Purpose Vehicle which will include a Robotic Arm, Several Sensors and Servo Driven Wheels. This project was actually a 6 legged 2DOF Hexapod using an Arduino and a Servo Shield but I was simply inexperienced in Coding in C++. Hence the project halted. Now with couple of modifications and ideas, This project became alive and i am waiting for my EZ-B kit to arrive to make it fully functional.

But for the time being, Here are some pictures to show you my Cyborg.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Introducing TALON ONE!

The Turrets are attached for tuning of the Arms. Servos has been modified to do a 360 degrees.

Took off a Toy racing car's rear wheels with gears and used it as a Turret Turning Device. Works wells as the weight is totally off the ServosSmile The only problem is i still do not know where to stuff my wires in.

Talon One gets his Claws! from spark fun. Not bad for a cheap robotic claws.

The Claw trying to munch on my desk.

Sigh i am still waiting for my EZ B. The status of my order is still the same "NEW ORDER". I cant wait for my toy to arrive. I am sure this is going to be super awesome!

More progressive updates coming soon!

Awesome looking arm you have! Did you build it from a kit or from scratch? Looking forward to more on Talon One!

The Arm is from my previous Hexapod Project using Arduino. I was really bad at coding and so i decided to make into a Mars Explorer Kinda Automaton. Hence the Arms are actually parts of the Femur and Tibia.
