    Time for a short update....

    For the 2 Webcams, we want to integrate into the eyes, we had to disassemble the prepared eyes, and drilled 2 big holes in them, so that we can integrate both Cams in that space....

    Before we assembled the completed eyes, we first had to paint the cams....

    [​IMG]

    last but not least, we started to build the backside of the eyes....

    Amazing little robot you got here my man... That last video clip was great, but just when I had finally been able to get that closing song from Portal 2 out of my head and you come and stick it back in there. It will take me another couple weeks to get that dang song out of there again... :D

    Beside that we also want to send a big thank you to HTC for their support:clap: They really liked our Wall-E so they send us an HD7 which we will integrate in the remote control.

    [​IMG]

    Naturally we already started to build a new housing for the remote control....

    yeah thats true...

    i really was astonished by myself when i see that we didn´t completed the worklog last year....
    i think we was to upset about the failures he did on the Gamescom last year...so that we didn´t posted anything more....

    But fortunately we decided to continue the work on it :thumb: so here we go again....:D

    But before i start over with the new stuff.....here are a few last pictures which we made last year....

    remote control:

    a small shield which we made to connect all the servos to the arduino...
    [​IMG]

    and a last pic of it @DCMM2011 @Gamescom
    [​IMG]

    Before the Gamescom everything worked really fine (like you could see in the videos), but as soon as we arrived at our Booth we only had trouble with it....to make a long story a bit shorter....
    nearly the complete animatronic fails and all servos got killed...:D

    a little bit outraged about the fact that everything worked so well....at home....and than a big desaster when it gets serious....

    back at home...we put it away for a few month and don´t wanted to see it....but after a while....we started to think over it again....and now he´s back in the workshop.....


    So here´s a quick overview what we´re planning for the next weeks....

    - The Complete Electronics will be replaced
    - Autonomous driving mode
    - a second rotating axis will be added to the lower arm
    - the hand will get an additional funtion (grip)


    And now...enough of the words....here comes the first new pics....

    [​IMG]

    here is a quick sketchup of the upper arm and what we plan to do with it....
    you could see the pocket in which we´re going to place a small servo (to open and close the hand) and a small gear motor (to rotate the complete lower arm)
    [​IMG]

    with that in our minds we already started to build the rotating mechanism for the lower arms....
