The Latest in Hobby Robotics 06

In this weeks show, Rik and Frits are taking a look at one of the
oldest, yet still most popular simple and fun hobby robot projects:
“The Sumo”. Also in this show, a look at a very impressive piece of a
hand made full metal robot that looks like it is ready to explore
Here is a list of links related to the show, including project pages

    Personally, I prefer Parallax MCUs even if they are more expensive. They’re quite powerful, and the command set is? also quite large, especially for the 2p24 in the case of BASIC Stamps, which includes useful special commands like LCDOUT or I2CIN. I’m actually doing an autonomous robot using one.

  7. You are looking at …
    You are looking at the sumo bots.? I like the robot ramble robots for science olympiad. But they are controlled by a controller in a persons hand. I plan on trying to make ours run on its own using either an arduino or a parallax solution.
