Re: Arduino?

Small update here. I've been really busy with AP tests. On Saturday after GEAR (my mentors' lego competition) (I'm refing there.) I'll be going out to goodwill and some thrift stores to see if I can find some old rc cars so I can harvest the motors.

I finally made v3 of my base. I know I haven't showed v2 at all but here's v3.



It needs some adjustments but I like the concept. I also have some handdrawn stuff too, but I'm too lazy to upload. I'll be documenting and keeping everything. I seem to be getting the hang of inventor. This project is awesome so far.

I've also been playing around with some variations with the cold cathode, I think I have away of powering it it fully, I just need to find a good 12v power source....

PS.. This is what my folder looks like http://i.imgur.com/i4pM3.png I have been working on it. Slowly but surely. Now that AP tests are over for me I'll start to speed things up

Suggestions on design?

Re: Arduino?

Provided you already have an Android phone, you might want to look into Google's new ADK as a method of programming, where you can physically hook the phone up to the board like a tether, or integrate it into the system itself. They say they have Bluetooth support coming soon as well, and if not, you can also use Amarino. Just food for thought.

I don't want to pay 300bucks for the ADK. I'm going with Amarino. It's a bit outta my price range seeing as I'm going to thrift stores just to get old RC cars.

The adk is great and all, but no thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion tho

http://cgi.ebay.com/Omniwheel-transw...ht_1081wt_1139

Are these good enough omniwheels? Or is there any better/cheaper ones I can buy?

It reminds me of the end connector for the Tetra game pieces in the 2005 game Triple Play.

I'm assuming you understand those wheels are 1.2" (3 cm) in diameter. This won't be an outdoor bot... Other than that, those look fine for the price. Shipping's not cheap, but buy more than 3 'just in case'.

I couldn't find anything cheaper :/ and I understand this isn't an outdoor bot.
I'll keep looking, but I'll buy more than 3 for sure.
