I finally got to play around with the code last night. I’ve been preparing to move for a job these past few weeks and haven’t gotten as much play time in as I’d like. Again my goal (for now) is to have the wiichuck control the movement of the robot and the color of the light (which will go on the effector end).
First off… I am not nearly skilled enough to have written this code all by myself so I’d like give credit to the people who posted this project: Wiichuck Controlled Delta Robot. This was a huge help for me while prototyping. I also want to thank my friend Krux for writing the c RGB LED bit in the beginning of this video!
I mashed these two elements together and voila! PROGRESS:
Also! I’m impressed with this guy’s resourcefulness. He managed to make an even less expensive and easier to assemble delta bot out of balsa wood rods with heat shrink joints:
And! This guy succeeded in making exactly what I’m trying to, a baby delta that moves gracefully:
That’s all for now. Thank you again to all who’ve answered my many questions lately.
