Very quick video documenting our Robonova’s first steps, warts and all… A bit rough since he has yet to be properly calibrated or balanced and his battery pack is still hanging off of his back.
HaHa member bsom acquired a Robonova-1 bi-ped robot kit for his day job and brought it to the space for us to assemble, configure and generally play with. So far, the robot is about 85% done, requiring its wires to be properly tucked and its motors to be centered. Then we can dig in and learn some hardcore RoboBasic. :-) Videos of the finished bot will be posted once he is up and running.
A while ago, HaHa member bsom introduced us to non-Newtonian fluids and the idea of using cornstarch and water in conjunction with a speaker/amp and function generator to produce what he called a “Cornstarch Monster.” The video below is an excellent representation of what can be done with this simple yet captivating recipe.
