Newest Robot

On black Friday I got a great deal on a 3D printer.  One robot I've always liked that requires 3D printing is a BoB.  The design files for the mechanics are available on Thingiverse.  So not long after I got my printer set up and had a couple of prints under my belt my BoB came out.  Four 9-gram servos and some small screws later and the mechanics were done.  Everything went together without a hitch.

Then I added an Arduino Pro Mini, a boost regulator, a battery pack, a switch, and about an hour of programming.

I've got the 3mm leds for the mouth and the ultra-sonic sensor for the eyes, adding them is next, but that will have to wait until I get home from Christmas travels.
