This was a very nice week-end project: building the BQ’s Zowi Open Source Robot.
You just need a 3D printer, 4 standard servos, an Arduino and cables.
I found the source at http://diwo.bq.com/zowi-cc-by-sa/
After the build I found some suggestions:
Hardware: Not all the servos come with the hub size used in the design.
Software: You have to manage to find the ocillator library and correct some misspellings.
- The BQ arduino version is very cool but is not easy to find. You can use your standard arduino uno making a bigger hole on the head shell.
- An extra hole for the switch is important too.
- The hardest part is to fit the head shell with all the cables. A redesign with the arduino fixed toi the chasis instead of the shell could help
Many thanks to the BQ team!
