Beer Keg R2D2

Its not the best R2 robot in the web but it´s funny and i build it because i always wanted my own R2 driving in my living room^^         i build this R2D2 with a beer keg. The robot is based on the cybot robot and cotrolled 

with the pololu maestro servo micro controller. 




the body is a small beer keg 



the feets and legs are made of balsa wood 



the head is the cap of my wastebin 



connected all parts with al lot off glue



finally connected all wires and paint it white/blue 



thanks for watching ;) 

navigate via sonar, follow a line, make r2-sounds, moving head and lieghts

  • Control method: Pololu mini maestro servo contrtoller
