Shows the operation via bluetooth of a mini caterpillar dozer 3D printed based in the Prof. Brian Evans' previous work in Thingiverse.(thing:29827)

Now, new Android app available! http://madebyfrutos.wordpress.com/2013/02/09/bobobot-meets-android/


BoboBOT can be controlled via Bluettoth for telecontrol or running way.
Push objects, save obstacles or take part in a mini sumo's fight!

Part list: 3D parts, caterpillar 22-tooth silicone tracks, micrcontroller (arduino or similar), Pololu micrometal gearmotor (50:1 e.g.), motor driver, baterry pack and optionally, wireless device (such as bluetooth or ZigBee)

really nice to see Bluetooth controller done in Processing. Was just about to create my own with Python and PyGame but yours is already great enough to use! Many thanks for the code and documentation!

Thank you, for the feedback.

I love "Processing" so much, but Python is the top! ;)

Bluetooth is detected as a common "serial port".
Be sure you have linked your computer and your bluetooth device correctly the first time. (preferences>bluetooth>add new device> detect...) it's really easy!

I'm gonna be printing this out later,I'm gonna use it with my parallax stamp basic microcontroller,I'm Excited to see the result!

Oh, sounds really good! Luck!
