    Bravo! Nice display!

    And yes, I bought one! The Erco Figure Eight Challenge has probably increased global commerce!

    Excellent! Time to stir up some figure 8 activity on this long-quiet thread. What do YOU boys got to show?

    Whit, at this point I'll settle for you walking a Figure 8 in your R2-D2 beanie. :)

    That micro is a Nunya.

    17X speed!

    I'll be working on a new bot over break, hopefully a figure 8 is in the offing!
  • This why I have electric fly swatters.

    Something new for Erco...
    Beat you to it! I also did this with the FLiP, but lost the video! Ugh. Will re-shoot later.

    Here is the FLiP version programmed with BlocklyProp.

    Playing around with some 3D printed ratchet wheels (ergo, the clicking sound). I slammed this simple 1-servo wiggle walker together in an hour today using paint sticks, a tongue depressor, super glue and an MG-995 servo (AKA the world's worst servo). Not a dead reckoning champion but decent results in 5 minutes of programming. Or should I say CODING, that seems to be the preferred buzzword these days.

    Lets add some new entries here, @Whit @"Duane Degn" @"Ken Gracey" @xanadu @Martin_H !
