New Robot Under Construction

It has been a while since I have done anything robotics related. My son has been a hand full and hasn’t allowed me to do much outside of work. It has been worth it but I’m grateful for his growing independence and glad to get back into my hobby again. So I ordered a new robot chassis and built it today.  I decided to go with the Magician Chassis from Sparkfun.  It is one of the cheapest platforms out there and is big enough for the robot I’m planning.

I’m hoping I can scrape together enough time before the weekend is up to attach my raspberry pi and the L293D H-Bridge that I got from i3Detroit and do a little programming.  I also purchased a new wifi adapter which is going to make programming a lot easier.  I should get that by Saturday.
