Not wanting to be a messager of bad news but DVD laser heads if charged up the can cauteriaze anything...That's what I have seen!!! (in the robot tutorials like the 50$ robot, somewhere if you search a little bit the user's video you can see what i'm talking about) BUT you are only 13, DON"T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!! This laser beam can be extremelly harmfull....Knowledge is to prevent disaster, not to create it!!!Warm RegardsLefteris, Greece...
just 2x4's?cause tht seams like it would make for a heavy robot
Mega,You can attach a softgun to your robot making it shoot BB's but then you have to make a way to fire it electronic. But lasers If your thinking of buy real lasers (the ones that can cut through different materials) that would be $EXPENSIVE$
The thing about wood though is that is heavy and would take a lot more powerful drive system to move it around...
Ok, thanks everyone!I've got another though: I'm thinking of making my robot out of wood. Why?Well, I'm 13 and can't cut any metals, and I'd rather not use a plastic. If I did, I'd use HDPE. Also, wood helps prevent static and if I get shocked it won't be as bad as if it were metal. I can work with wood too and we've got plenty of 2x4-10's laying around in the back shed. Is this a good Idea?Also I'm thinking of helping admin with the whole "World domination thing"- I'm gonna figure out how ta make my robot shoot lasers/bb's!
Cutting boards are your friend I learned that a while back.....
