Coolerbot Goes Bird Watching
Steve Norris recently completed his Coolerbot, designed for nature photography and surveilance. The rugged, waterproof device consists of a Coleman cooler, Nikon DSLR cam, infrared video camera, motors, wheels, 10Ah batteries and solar panels for charging. Two Parallax HB-25s control the motors and the robot itself is run by a 912MHz transceiver.
Norris has also been working on phase 2 of his Chessbot, which can be played with humans, chess engine software or via a social network site like Twitter.
