I got to help build Mousey the Junkbot this week with my dad, it was lots of fun! (but even more fun to play with and decorate!) Check out the video on youtube or the post on Makezine.com. Two more mini maker shows to come!
Right now, it's just my notes for how it could work, but I'll be padding out the pages to get the basics down, shorten the main page, and then sending the link off to some smart people on twitter to see if anyone is interested.
Ok, so.. maybe I'm crazy but... ever since my initial foray into Micro-controllers, so little emphasis is kept on the actual building when it comes to "moving" bots. On the beloved arduino, all it takes is a single open source shield (or less) to start making a chassis move, and right out of the box you can receive and measure various sensors and inputs.
