hey , i have never built a robot, im in 7th grade, help!!!
« on: September 12, 2006, 08:32:09 PM »
Hey peoples! OK, I want to make a robot for a science fair that has some sort of AI , at least enough to navigate around obstacles. I've never made a robot before, and I have practically no knowledge of the related topics. I am smart and willing to learn, so help of any kind is appreciated! Also, being in 7th grade I have NO source of income, so any tips on how to be super cheap on parts would help. Thanks for your time! Please help!

read alot of tutorials , read the forums a bit, etc. you'll learn alot with this alone :)
And then make the 50$ robot. That'll teach you another load of stuff...

I worked in my yard for money to build my robot parts. I made the chassis out of long, thin peices of wood for 25 cents each. I glued them usingwood glue and made small supports.
