New robotic toy coming out!
« on: June 18, 2021, 09:14:21 AM »
Hello everybody!

     I have invented a new robotic toy, that everyone will enjoy, I hope!
 
It is a Raspberry pi 3 project. I will sell the plans for it, which includes instructional video, schematics, links to free software sites, how to install the freeware, and instrumentation of the robot.

The cost of the plans will be $20; about the same of a good python book you would buy, or the
cost of 2 favorite DVD movies. Once you have the plans, you can make as many as you want!
The estimated cost of the materials to build the robot is approx. $260. That included the cost of the raspberry pi 3, sensors, and mechanical components. To compare, some broken, not working parts for the HERO robot sell at $250 to $600 dollars, and you only get a broken robot. SAD!

I GURANTEE YOU that there is nothing in the world on the market today, like the robot I am going to build!! I will release the web site link to download the plans, exclusively, here on Society of Robots!!!!!!

So, stay tuned, TRUE BELIEVERS! EXCELSIOR!!!!!

 8) Thank you, thank you!  8)

Once you have the plans, PLEASE feel FREE to hack the robot to your heart's desire!!!!  ;D

 :D have no fear, I am still here!!  :D

     I am completing the code, and the final assembly of the robot; debugging and
tweeking out any potential problems that I think may have. This is probably the most
time consuming part of invention, BUT, it sure is fun!!!  ;D
    I may go back and make some GUI interfaces, to help in the construction of the
robot; kind of like, a robot construction wizard AI!   ;D
    I am trying to make the construction of the robot so easy, that anyone with some robot
skills should be able to complete it in 3 hours, or an enjoyable weekend, - my goal, anyway.
   
Stay tuned, True Believers!!!!  EXCELSIOR!!!!   8)   8)

  For those of you who are "afraid" of the code and robotics, and may need good supplemental books to read,
and downloadable books, I will include the names of them in my plans. I am trying to
make the project building enjoyable as possible, with a simple "shake and bake" assembly procedure.

     3 hours to complete the robot sounds lengthy, but if you have ever played with a raspberry pi,
interfacing components to the real world consumes time, as well as programming itself! before you
know it, you have spent 3 hours just enjoying yourself working on the raspberry pi!


     As for the code, I am listing REM statements in the code for you to use; whereas, you have access
to variables that lets you introduce more sensors into the program to enhance the your robot,
without rewriting the whole program. I will also list freeware that may help write the code for you, to provide a more enjoyable way to enhance your robot.

     Stay tuned true believers!!!   8)   8)

     Hello again to everybody!!

     I am streamlining the software loading process for you, as to make it as painless as possible.
I have found some vendors that will preload some of the freeware, which will make the robot
assembly faster, but will make the overall cost $5 - $10 more.
     
     I found a beginner robot enthusiast near me; and am working with him, to make the instructions
user friendly to someone just beginning robotics. He is helping me explain the things I
am overlooking, so it will make it easier for anyone who wants to build this, should have
no problem assembling it in a short amount of time.

  ;D  stay tuned, true believers  ;D same robot channel, same robot time!!   ;D

   Good day, True robotic believers!!

    I would introduce to you, a helping hand in writing your python scripts;

     https://streamlit.io   ;)

    streamlit program will help you write your python programs; which will be useful when you
hack my robot program when I release it. This program is free, but, as all software, will cost
you time in learning to use it.

    Another program, which is a starting point for cross platform programming is:

    http://www.flowgorithm.org  ;)

   This software gives you a basic, bare bones skeleton of cross platform programming. Not the best
of programs, but is a nice intro to information of cross platform programming.  This will help in your
desire to let your smart phone access the robot, for remote control, camera pics, software uploads, or
additions of IoT peripherals that you can imagine!!  ;D

    As to the main core of the freeware used, I will submit communities that focus more on the internals;
so you can go as far as you want to to accelerate your imagination on the robot!!   :)


    I will release more freeware advice that is helpful, for future concerns. So, when you get the
robot plans, you will already have supplemental info  to hack the robot!!   ;D

    Thanks for reading my post, and stay tuned, same robot channel, same robot time!!!   ;D

 8) excelsior!   8)

I would like to recommend a book that will help you with my new robotic toy!

 "Beginning Robotics with Raspberry pi and Ardunio"

This book gives a quick reference to all the main points that will make your
life easier with robotics, especially with my toy!!

 ;D see you same robotic channel, same robotic time!!!!  ;D

 :) excelsior!!   :)

   Hello, True Believers!  8)

   In my preparations to make this project as simple as possible, I
have found a company that sells the raspberry pi, the LCD screen, camera, AND freeware already installed!!!  ;D

     All you have to do, is build the mechanical, load my control program, and VOLIA! instant robot toy!!!   :D

     I had to do it this way, to simplify the programming issues that (believe me) would frustrate anyone. Loading
and compiling some of the freeware can be a task, and could take away from enjoying the robot.  :'(

     Although, slugging through these issues is what robotic  8) superheros do; but, that is one less thing you will
need to do.

     I am working with the company to make sure it works properly; if so, this will simplify the project greatly, and
reduce the cost of the project by approx $50 - $100 dollars!!!   ;D

 Thank you for reading this post!!  8) see you next  post, same robot channel, same robot time!!!!   8)
