BOTtle

BOTtle is a robot like many others but with a particularity, the wheels are made of plastic bottles as you can see in this video:





The components I will be using:
BOTle


The servos are already attached to one another with double side-tape, I will show you how to attach the wheels to the servo horns
BOTle


Start by adding wood self-tapping screws to the servo horn just a little in a way they won’t fall
BOTle


Repeat this process 4 times

Open small holes in the exact place where the screws will be tight. I used a soldering iron.

Tight both screws to the wheels

Now I am placing the bumpers on the front of the bot on a PVC sheet (in this post you can see what I have done for a Sharp sensor)
BOTle


And now the caster wheel, those screws tips are going to be cutted out
BOTle


The screw tips are gone and added a bit of super glue because the PVC melted when cutting the screws
BOTle


To attach the pvc base to the servos I am using double side rubber tape
BOTle


And this is what I have done so far, more will be added soon (I hope)

PAPERduino’s design

This is a fully functional version of the Arduino. We eliminated the PCB and use paper and cardboard as support and the result is.. the PAPERduino :D

This is the the first version of the layout design, next we will try more designs, and another materials. You just need to print the top and the bottom layout, and glue them to any kind of support you want. We hope that you start making your own boards. If you do, please share your photos with us, we would love to see them  ;)

There is no USB direct connection, so to program the paperduino you will need some kind of FTDI cable or adapter. One of this products will be fine:
FTDI cable from Adafruit Industries
FTDI adapter from Sparkfun

Components list:
1 x 7805 Voltage regulator
2 x LEDs (different colors)
2 x 560 Ohm resistors (between 220oHm and 1K)
1 x 10k Ohm resistor
2 x 100 uF capacitors
1x 16 MHz clock crystal
2 x 22 pF capacitors
1 x 0.01 uF capacitor
1 x button
1 x Atmel ATMega168
1 x socket 28 pin
Female and Male headers

Instructions:
Use a needle to puncture the holes for your components.

Don’t rush, place one component after another and do all the solder work carefully.

Follow the connection lines.

And this should be the final look of your paperduino connections.

PAPERduino for ALL
