My journey has led me to this website.
I started about 3 months ago building an Otto robot and now I can proudly say from what I learned using Otto blockly I was able to create the Dozer bot. I am constantly changing and making this robot better with each 3D print and improvement as I learn new things.
All of the designs are mine except Otto Blockly. I don’t like to code but I can program all day long using graphics. To me, I think that this is the future of robotics. Remember when we had to learn hexadecimal code before we had gem top or windows 3.1. I grew up with Pong and atari. I went to war with commodore and apple back then taking apart xl drives and running double density. Those were the days.
So why not use Otto blockly to program. My friend Camilo keeps on improving his program, and I love to use everything he codes.
Dozer bot is the result of this program. I want to share with you what I created. I don’t like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I like old fashion forums like this one.
I don’t plan to sell this, this is my pet project to learn about robotics using a 3D printed body with Arduino electronics. If you like this please tell me so, if you don’t please be kind in the comments is all I ask.
Dozer was designed to be a modular robot. This project began with many various models and prototypes before settling on this final design. I believe that Dozer is capable of going further than my knowledge of blockly. I don’t know code and don’t plan too.
Long as there are programs like blockly that are graphical. I will always try and design new and improved models.
I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I did in making Dozer.
