Stainless Steel Unicorn

Over the weekend I finished off the Stainless Steel Unicorn. My first test was not very successful as the wheels just span rather than moving the robot. So I used some Sugru to form tyres for the wheels and that made a big difference. Also, due to the heavier steel chassis, the marble front wheels dug in on the carpet so the bot is limited to hard surfaces.

Ross provided me with a simple Beta version of the software which easily found the robot over bluetooth and I could control the motion using a games controller like on screen pad.

If you want your own kit (cardboard not steel) then there’s still a few hours to get in on the Kickstarter.
