I dunno, some sorta desk bot head or something?
So this guy happened last night. I have been inspired by the work of Mr. Protowrxs and his Box Head Robot and thought I needed a little deskbot as well. I also wanted an excuse to run more plywood through the laser cutter. That said, I give you, "The wood box desk thing".
There really is not too much fancy going on here. Just a nifty box, a pan and tilt and the LCD. I wrote a bit of code to move the head randomly, but beyond that, I am using the Arduino IDE examples for the SRF-05 and LCD. (Ping library and the LiquidCrystal library if you are interested. There is nothing inside but some wiring and a single pot for the LCD contrast.
I think that's it, like I said, I have no idea what I am going to do with him, maybe add a Dagu Compound Eye and have him follow my hand around...
Keeps one company, I suppose
