Share, Build and have fun.

Will be glad for feedback.

Hi

Love it :)   I'm getting a Error 503 Service Unavailable on both the links below your video though?

The whole site is like that.  Has been almost a week with the attachments of the site not working.

I managed to download the PDF from google docs.

Cool project...and thanks for taking the time to document it.

Can it spin around on two wheels?

It would be neat if the robot could stand up all by itself (4->2 wheels).
No, I don't answer questions sent in private messages (but I do accept thank-you notes...)

There are two video`s the in the second i show a control from an android and there its rotates on two and can stand up by approaching a wall.

Great project and write up! I have started building a 2 wheel version using the arduino minipro, H bridge and 6050.
The motors start turning when the bot is upright so I have something mounted wrong.
These are the 6050 values I get when bot is upright , using this code: accelgyro.getMotion6(&ax, &ay, &az, &gx, &gy, &gz);
   484ax    -16888ay    -1644az    -410gx    -155gy    -254gz 
  I disabled the lines using 'top motor and motor2'.
Question: how did you mount the 6050? My 6050 is perpendicular to the axis of rotation of the wheels, whith Y pointing down when the bot is upright. Thanks.
