Hi there. I'm not new to electronics and engineering, but I am new to Arduino and programming. I'm studying a masters in graphic communication and I've got a background in interactive new media from my degree and I'm looking to explore more electronics projects, but I fear I have reached my limitations.
I'm looking for someone to help me develop a simple robot (in principal!) that works from a few servos..the catch is it's an aquatic robot, a fish to be precise. I've seen robot fish concepts before but I want to make one that I can develop to brand and market (the branding and marketing will be the bulk of my graphics masters). It will go on display in a tank ideally, in my end of year exhibition in Cardiff, South Wales.
Why a robot fish? I hear you ask.. I want it to be different, and for an exhibition context, a tank with interesting lights will really set it off. If possible, instead of it being autonomous, I'd like it to be powered by or at least controllable from an android or i-phone device via bluetooth. (If this element is too much then i'm fine with it being autonomous).
Off the top of my head, I know its going to need at least a few proximity sensors and a few servos to aid the movement.
As I said, it's a job offer, so it will be paid if you can help me build and construct the project, as I'm keen to learn. All of the construction/development will be part of my project so I could even market it as a joint project with a hobbiest/enthusiast (i.e. you could get your name on it and credited in the exhibition).
I cannot offer hundreds of pounds as I am a student and I'm pretty skint but it'll be something.
Thanks for reading. Gareth. (firstname.lastname@example.org
