I can’t believe I’m saying this, but… IT’S ALIIIIIVEEE!
Doesn’t do much more than drive around with commands sent through a terminal session to the onboard Pi Zero, but I’m pretty sure this is the best run at building a robot I’ve had.
Needs better wheels, though – shiny hard plastic drive wheels aren’t so good on carpet, and a front “wheel” made out of a big blob of masking tape leaves a lot to be desired.
But there is definitely some progress going on. And it already picked up some hair (and there’s no brush or mop or vacuum on it)!
Woohoo little robot!
