News from the maker of the Yellow Drum Machine in the previous post: fritsl @ http://letsmakerobots.com has come up with two "Wall Racers", basically two toy race cars with with the same ultra-sonic sensor (SRF05). Primary target: Stay close to the wall, drive fast, and overtake the other!

Vids and instructions: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/696

Finally some reactive robots! Loving it! :D

Here are some pix.

Apparently the robot can be used to detect a foot stumping on the floor or someone clapping - and, best of all, it can find the speed of this after four beats, and play along / fall in to your clapping or stumping!!

Fritsl, we wanna hear you beatbox with it!!!
