Drew The Robotics Guy Makes Wiimote Work With Spider Robot
Drew the robotics guy decided to hack up a little experiment that makes a spider robot work with Nintendo Wiimotes. The Wiimotes can even make the spider flip upside down. It took Drew about $1,000 to put the whole thing together.
To put together the experiment, Drew used steel plates, copper, aluminum tubing, a 7.4 1100 mAh lithium-polymer battery, a pair of XBee radio modules to communicate with the robot, a Pololu micro SSC board and eight HX12K servos.
“Created for entertainment purposes. It is made to dance and entertain people at conventions and parties,” stated Drew.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry. You can follow me at @amitchowdhry or on Google+ at +AmitChowdhry
