Spy Video Trakr with Lego robot arm

in hacks, robotics by the machinegeek | 1 comment

Steve Schuler likes to hack the Spy Video Trakr. His most recent efforts involve adding a Lego grabber arm. He writes:

I have added a Lego grabber arm to the Spy Video Trakr. The Trakr is a remote controlled robot equipped with a microphone and color video camera, speaker, a near infrared LED for night vision, an SD memory card slot for recording audio/video and 8MB of on board memory for storing downloadable and user designed programs. The remote control unit has control levers to drive the robot, a speaker and color video display so you can hear the audio picked up by the microphone and display the video transmitted by the camera, and several function buttons that can be used to control additional program functions of user designed programs.

You can read about this and Steve’s other Trakr hacks at his website.

We just wonder what would happen if the Trakr/grabber tabbed the tabby in the video’s background…
