Trossen Robotics has announced their next contest and the prizes this time are just short of awesome. First prize is the Bioloid Comprehensive Kit, second is the Bioloid Beginner Kit and third is an Robotis Ollo Bug Kit. We’ve got a couple Bioloid’s at work and they are fun to play with. I saw the Ollo Bug at the Toy Fair and it has potential. I will have a review of it sometime in April.
Trossen is trying something different this time. The entries must be in the form of a tutorial. Some the suggestions include explaining what a digital gyroscope signal is, explaining how motors and servos work, choosing the right microcontroller and inverse kinematics, dead reconning and spatial mapping.
So head on over to Trossen’s contest page for more details and see what you can come up with. If you submit any howtos, please comment a link here so I can read it.
