4th February 2008 Wall-E My next new project is going to be from the up and coming movie Wall-E, This little robot intrigues me so will attempt to recreate it. It will take some time but looking forward to it.
T-! Rise of The Machines

 This is my second entry into the TRC contest, This robot is a hard one to build from scratch as there are very little photo's on the net, I have searched for about 5 months and only come up with about 9 good res pics. GWJax found a good pic for me as well [far right in pic]. There are a number of sites dedicated to the Terminator series, but not a lot on the T-1 so I think that I will be doing well to complete this robot. It will be similar to J5 in as much that it will have an ITX PC and solid state Hdd and vision, quite a few sensors will be included, but the main attraction will be the live twin firing gattling guns which GWJax is building for me, These will be in the region of 10-13" long and will rotate at a pretty rapid rate, there will be a fair bit of timing to be done to get this right on GW's part. The base and tracks are finished, Two sets of batteries will be housed in the track sections, [Penty of room in there] and the main batteries in the mid section. At this stage I have built the main body in MDF and balsa, this is the plug that will be used for the mold to cast the final item in either glass or carbon. The head will be carved out of molding clay that GW is going to send me and then molded in glass to form the head, this will house the sensors and camera. T-1 will have a total of 11 servos, 6 HR-5990 for the arms and gattling guns, 2 HR- 5990's for the raise and lower of the torso, A heavy duty 1/4 scale servo for the rotational base, and 2 for the pan/tilt head, 645's. Track will run of 12v system [ May reduce this to get a lower speed], 9.6 ITX and 7.2v servos. I have not decided on the targeting system for the gattling guns yet. I hope this robot will be ready for the next round of competitions, but, if it is not then it will have to go in the next round.

 Wall-E was entered in two competitions recently Trossen Robotics 3 monthly competitions and Instructables robot competition, Wall-E managed to place 1st in both competitions, TRV 1st prize was a SG-5UT robotic arm and from Instructables a Robophillo android kit. Thanks guys.

 Wall-E has come a long way and is almost finished, He is at my local cinema at present whilst the movie is on. Check out my Wall-E forum at the link on my Wall-E section.

 Well, My J5 is coming on real good, I have had some ups and downs constructing it mainly due to parts not being up to scratch for the modded version. But on the whole it is coming on real good. You can go to my J5 page and catch up on the new posts.

 Ok, Not much has been happening in the robotic arena for me as of the 30th October, I have been revamping my electronic workshop and making it more efficient for 2008. I have a few unfinished projects from 2007 and will try to get these finished before any new projects. I do want to revamp my ER1 from the photo's you see on this website to a smaller version less weight and incorporating an ITX M/B, 10.5 LCD screen,WIFI or Blue tooth, Two camera's as eyes, Gripper and IR sensors, This will have to be rebuilt from the ground up. Evolution I hear will be reintroducing a Revamped ER1 this year so this will be exciting for me and I guess a lot of other ER1 users.
