The Real Wall-E

 
#1

It's been a very crazy past few weeks. I took a day off today. Yes! I admit it. I took a day off... And I built a robot Smile Felt great to be back in the hacking saddle!

This Wall-E hack from DJ Sures turned out great! DJ used the EZ-B Robot Kit to build an amazing real life Wall-E! He added the camera from the kit to Wall-E's head for visual tracking. He then added a horizontal neck servo and vertical head servo. Now this Wall-E can visually track motion, color and faces in two dimensions... Up, down, left and right!

For extra character, DJ added Wall-E sounds to actions and some voice commands. He whistles when asked to follow your face. He sighs and moans when his favorite red ball is taken away from him. Do not worry, he quickly perks up when asked to dance to the movie's familiar music score.

Be sure to watch the video and see this Wall-E in action!

I've been dying to! So little time lately with toddler birthday parties and work projects. I may need to follow your lead and take a day or two off work/life...

Yes! Come back to robot land. We miss you Smile

What is the category on ebay you can find Wall-e on?

#7

Oh! oh! will
This wall-e (approx 5 inches) fit the EZ-B and a couple of micro servos? since i got lenses i am bad at estimating lengths

I doubt it. The Interactive Wall-E will fit the EZ-B. I have modified one of those also.It fits well but you need a smaller battery pack.

Hi
I swear I saw the code for Wall-E's dance somewhere on the site. Can you direct me to it so I can get a look at it? I would like to see a finished code for servo programming.

Thanks

You can download the sdk, there is a lot of info in it.
Vb and c#

I've build a control specific for the wall-e interactive.
He can move his arms and head drive around and take pictures.
All done with the help of the sdk

But The EZ-Builder is much better than my vb code Smile

If you want the full control of your bot i suggest the EZ-Builder Smile
