Dr. Claw First Run

Well, I got the claw hooked up to my software. Here's the video. I also uploaded it onto youtube, where the quality really sucks, btw.

Now I've got to write some extra-custom software that will allow me to navigate to coordinates and manipulate objects. I also plan to integrate the Wii remote after that using the C# library. Shouldn't be too tough.

You'll notice that the shoulder joint isn't running yet. I'll be adding a geared stepper motor to the base (which already has the gears integrated as shown in a previous blog). I'll also need to make the shoulder a bit sturdier and add a servo reverser before that joint works.

The music is a new song I'm working on with Fuzil.

Aaron this is very good!! This is the kind of robots that is used in industry all the time. The ability to move in all directions is very good. What they do and would be good for you is if you could have it program its movements by you just guiding it through the motion you want it to do and then have it remember that path/work and be able to repeat it. Learn by doing. Looking forward to seeing you on Sat. DAD

Aaron, great job! We had a Sankyo robot at HP on one of the projects I was working on.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to see the final system in operation....

I saw this while browsing, and thought of you. Actually, it reminds me of something dad might have done, back in his "electronics" days:
