This project was the most frustrating so far. If every robot was this difficult to make I wouldn't be doing it anymore. I think.
For all the many hours of design, build, troubleshoot, build, redo, fix, correct, still not working, scream out loud sweat I have just this to say... IT STILL DOESN'T WORK!
In the total of about eight months I struggled to make it happen but it just wouldn't be.
I wanted to share this because I haven't given up and I am still making robots. I simply dismantled it and the parts went on to new robots.
The important thing here is the huge amount of knowledge I gained. I dealt mostly with physical structure problems more than anything. It was just stronger than its own design and while it walked I would watch it slowly tear itself apart. The circuits themselves went on rampages as well. I swapped out both bicores twice. It just proves that some things are better left on a shelf then draining all your fun out trying to save 'em.
Come on, what scientist ever learned things the easy way. If they had they just wouldn't be convinced they were right.
