R2-IQ Day 6:I spent some time over the weekend building with actual plastic parts. So far I'm trying to see how to build the body and head, without using so many parts the whole thing can't be lifted.
I don't yet have a good idea how much this will weigh. My first shipment of parts (which I thought would include everything) is only 2 boxes, and weighs just under 11 lbs.
That can't be right. I must have missed something. This is my first parts list. I'm planning on using a few items I already have. Will it be enough?

Head and body shape
Here are a couple actual builds of the head and body shape. I think it will look pretty good once it's complete and covered with white and blue...
Pieces of the robot
There are many separate parts to this project, that will all need to be combined for it to be complete. This list will help me think through everything.
- Internal structure
- Head Movement
- Arms (2x)
- Stationary setup
- Shoulder sensors to detect orientation
- 3rd Leg
- Raise & lower
- Motor layout for navigation
- Navigation software (remote and other control)
- Lights & Sounds
- Basic lights
