View Full Version : Eddie: What's missing?

Specifically, a big humanoid torso on top! Real roboticists know that small short platforms like Eddie are where it's at, but that ain't what the public comes to see at the PARALLAX OPEN HOUSE in April. So do yourself a favor and slap this cheesy $18 inflatable on top to wow the kiddies. No time to think about it, only one left at that price! He who hesitates is lost.

The display clearly reads "Program: DESTROY"

Is it programmed using Punchcards?

More likely airbags.

Hello Erco,

Both of those have been done before! Had airbags on my Battlebot Crash Test Dummy that had the body on top if it. If you saw pictures from the past UPENE show you may have seen my large dual Propeller powered robot which also uses the same body and uses many of the Eddie components. I took a couple current pictures at a Cub Scout demo I did recently.



Just need to make the time to write it all up and work on the code!
