    Yeah it starts out with “you’re a genius”. After a few years I’m lucky to get a blank stare and a “that sounds cool”.
    But then you have kids. They not only think your a genius, but they’re fascinated with your projects and they come up with their own. “Daddy can we build a boat with a motor for the new pool?”. Hell yeah we can.

    Dorsai65, the gearbox is small, about 10cm from the tip of one axle to the other. Each axle extends about 3cm from the gearbox. I can’t find precise specs anywhere, I don’t believe it was included with the product.
    I had no problem driving the motors with a SN754410 quad half H-Bridge. I used it on a small bot which weighed slightly under 1kg. In the high-torque configuration the bot zipped around at about normal walking pace, and had no trouble on slight inclines, thick carpet, etc.

    I’m thinking the modified gas powered RC cars cruising at 60mph will be the thing to beat :)

  • Product CLS-09016 | about 5 years ago

    Oh I’m so there. I was at the sparkfun building just a few days ago picking up parts for an autonomous bot I’m building. This is just too appropriate.

  • Product COM-08871 | about 5 years ago

    These are extremely thin and flexible, you don’t really need a specifically designed enclose, just a flat surface to stick it on.
    As an alternative you can peel these things off the front of a lot of old microwaves. Although, this one looks much cooler. (Having buttons like “popcorn” and “defrost” on a robotics project looks kind of silly)

No public wish lists :(
