Dancing Lego and Five Servos

Posted on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013 in R-Pi by the machinegeek


Pierre Villeneuve writes about his Dancing Lego robot project:

Its based on my Raspberry Pi, five servo motors, and Lego parts stolen from my son’s collection. The robot dances to some pretty groovy music, and there is a special appearance by Lego Batman.

In addition to the Pi, he uses a hardware 16-channel 12-bit PWM controller board from Adafruit to interface with the five servos.

    Thingy with a wheel is a truly groovy. But thingy with 3 hands (or legs?) sucks as a dancer.
