Years of robotic projects – dumped for your enjoyment

Meet tippy, just one of the multitude of robotic projects [Oneironaut] has taken on over the years. He ‘dug deep’ and put together a huge data dump of pictures and descriptions of his old robotic projects, then posted them for your enjoyment. When he wrote in to Hackaday on Monday he mentioned 33 pages of them, but he must be adding material as he finds it because we see 52 pages.

These aren’t micro-robots either. These are I’m going to chase you down because I’m your worst nightmare┬árobots. They use heavy welded-iron frames, lead-acid batteries, and gear-motor driven locomotion. Some of his project names include The Tank, The Sentinel, and The Megatron. Bookmark the link you see above, because you’re going to want to spend some time sifting through the candy-shop of projects which seem to be too plentiful to be the hobby of just one man. Although we shouldn’t be surprised, just look at the multitude of spy-gadgets he’s come up with lately like the GPS tracker and the long-range laser night vision.

    Considering he wrote a book about building the Tank along with a couple of his other bots, I’d imagine it’s pretty easy for him to produce 52 pages of material. He’s definitely done some cool stuff.

    Thanks for posting my Robot Scrapyard!

    I had fun over the years merging remote controls, tracking systems, and microcontrollers with car parts and may get back to it one day again.

    Cheers!

    Some of these designs are ridiculously awesome. Truly the kind of stuff that would make Dr Wily proud.
