nice! clean and professional looking, too!

got any in-progress pics? what method(s) did you use to make the parts?

where are the photoresistors? what are your plans for the headlights? :P

Got ya!
Don't have any in-progress pics... :( Worked to slowly to thought making pictures...
Those aren't headlights :)) , but it's a nice idea of which I'll think about :). Those are the photoresistors :D I've put them in the heads of 2 flash lights I dessambled. The case's walls are made of 3mm thick plastic plate. The front wheel is manualy made (the system of the supermarket carriage's front wheels.

Thank you for the "pro" qualifying. :D Trying to be...

Thank you!  :D
Yes. It cost me even less than that (the robot itself), but I spent some extra-money on something that is not in those 50$, like the Universal AVR Programmer (25$).

oh that make sense. did you have that chasis custom made. you probably have a friend that can do that stuff right? or i guess you could probably do it too. i am really amazed at how good it looks. i didn't catch was this your first robot? do you have a video yet? ok i'll stop asking questions. good job once again!

How did you get the edges rounded off like that? They make it look so clean and .. just...well   awesome! You should really make an in depth tutorial for I dunno        the tutorial contest.   

Once again great job i just cant get over how great it looks.     




OMG it looks cool!

Thats freakin awsome... :o
Me to thought it was 2 headlights there..:P
But when i looked closer i could see the photoresistors.
And YEAH! you should really use that robot in the upcoming contest. But if you dont have any "in progress" pictures it might be a little hard (If the admin requires it)
Any how, im thinking of making a RC walking robot..:D I just saw a movie on this page and it gave me a idea of a hand looking gripper.

I got $18 servos triple or quadruple of everything for the microcontroller ( the extra Atmega8s really came in handy) I bought a $12 scanning servo an IR rangfinder usb to serial that doesn't work with pony prog and a set of standoffs. ;D

I wrote in it that it was a theory we had . . . but I guess enough of you have had the same problem that I will post something like:

"ponyprog does not work with USB adaptors"
