So… I got home today, finished up some math HW, did some stuff, and made the first teaser image for the next post.
The OmniCar has a unique feature, probably built by many others, but I’ve never looked to see if anyone else has done it. It certainly was a challenge doing it by myself though. A friend and I got to talking about some vehicles that can turn their back wheels as they turn their front wheels. Then we decided to try and build an NXT car like that, but since he’s in a class right now that was requiring him to have a particular build at the time, I just built it and then we talked about it a bit. We might change the design a bit.
Now, while the OmniCar doesn’t have omniwheels, it can go almost completely sideways, left or right, and it can obviously turn and drive forward/back, so it’s practically omnidirectional. For a lot less money.
I’m hoping to have some programs written for it within the next month, and maybe some videos someday. I just need to get a better camera. I feel awful about the lo-quality videos I’ve made.
Anyways, more is coming soon… hence “Teaser post”
