Bob the NXT Humanoid Profile




I'm speechless… NeXT Featured Robot GUARANTEED! Now following you. Rating: *****

That is absolutely awesome! I can't believe how compact it is for all the parts you put into it.

Ohh, that is one awesome megarobot!

IMPRESSING! Looks very, very heavy... ***** Now following you.

It is so good, that it doesn't need words. The only thing i can say: If it was possible to give more than 5 stars, I gave you that. Please follow me back! :)

Impressive! I like your good pictures as well.

Wow, that is amazing! five stars+favorite

Help me, I cant breath, that is just so cool, I love it, you build that? Wooooooooooooow, now I have one more favorite robot and i will follow you from now

very awesome project, definitely 5*, nice job!

Good thing I checked NXTLog (can I still call it that?) today! Great work. Reminds me vaguely of the old X series, except I never bothered to beef up the arms. X-10 had pneumatic claws but never motors...hm. Nice to see you posting again.

Well, to me, this reminds me of Balboa the NXT Boxer.

Thanks everyone for all your kind compliments! :) @NatoNX: I still call it NXTLog occasionally, just out of habit though. I remember looking at some of your X series robots, when I first joined. I'll have to check them out again sometime.

Bob! LOL! I love it, it's so, I don't know, Bob like. He is the CHOSEN ONE!

wow, cool!

Great robot! I do have a question: my picture uploads aren't working it never even says loading for internet explorer so I was wondering if you have some suggestions.

Awesome humanoid, nxtstep! :D

Could you make a biped version of this?

Thanks guys for all the comments! And yes, I could have made it walk, but I decided to make it drive.

Nice job!

Wait... Why did you name him Bob? It that the best you could come up with? :P

Wow!! for a second I thought this was from MSEP!!!!

Bob seemed like a fitting name for him. And no, I came up with a few others but I chose this one. :P

I'll take that as a compliment Dave! :)

SO COOL! I favorited it and gave it 5 stars:)

It even has working claw hands I see!

Hello, everyone! I'm back with a brand new project. Bob is a humanoid robot that has the ability to do a variety of things. He has a tracked base with skid-steer driving, two arms that can move up and down, and two hands that can open and close. Bob uses two NXTs, six NXT motors, three sensors (ultrasonic, sound, and light), and more than 1,000 Technic pieces. I built Bob to test out bluetooth controlling on my new laptop, but he can be also be programmed to do other tasks autonomously. I started on a program that would allow the user to pick between three different programs, the first one being a program that would have Bob explore his surroundings. The second one would be a program that would have him "guard" a designated area and alert you (via bluetooth) whenever a trespasser is spotted. The last one was just for fun; it would make him dance to a beat. Overall I really enjoyed building this robot, and was amazed at how it turned out. My schedule has become a lot less busy so hopefully I will be able to build robots more often. Thanks for reading! *Note: I tried uploading a video but it would not allow me due to the fact that it was to big. I will try shortening and then re-uploading it.
