an army of robots anyone???
I like the openservo project, it is very upgradable, and useful in many different branches of robotics.We could do something like OpenStepper with stepping motors, or OpenSonar, or anything. These projects would extend the functionality of commonly used components in robots.
While thinking about an eventual community project i accidentally got an idea of a new kind of modular robot.I give thee the magnetic-cube-thingie:Think of it as an linear motor. I'm not sure if it will work though, but if it would work with this kind of behavior of it, the possibilities would be endless.Also, a problem here is communication between the cubes. They can't really be connected through pins like in most modular robots and wireless would probably not be a good option either...
I would like to do something more funny and than useful like making a small ed209 or grounder if it is even possible. modular sounds a little too hard and project servo still doesn't give me an idea.
