About[edit]

Planning on realizing my childhood dream of owning a droid.

Break it down ( 1980s spin-masters obligatory )[edit]

Frame[edit]

Looked at JAG Aluminum Frames. No Production runs scheduled in near future. May just build the frame myself.

Dome[edit]

Laser Cut Aluminum Milled Dome procured.

Side Legs[edit]

Aluminum milled legs procured.

Center Leg[edit]

I Do want a flip down wheel. The droid needs to be able to function mechanically like r2d2.

Motor Control & Drive System[edit]

Reading up on things others have done. My ask Zach to supply RepRap motor control system. Seems most of the R2 units us a similar driver system.

CPU[edit]

Looking into low power small profile boards now.

Optional Stuff[edit]

Status[edit]

Waiting on Legs. Beginning dome work. Investigating / Sourcing parts.
