K-9 looks like K-9 right now but there's no robotics, no electronics nothing to make him move. I'm trying to figure out robotics and exactly what I need to him mobile. Again this means visiting the forums:
Upto Day 19
So here's the current progress, I read that a lot of people have used the small red suckers you get from the Nerf dart gun type toys, so I used one as a temporary thing but it really was to small. After scouting eBay for a little bit I found a neat looking sucker, right colour and pretty much perfect size. its used as a stand for the iPhone and cost me about $2
All I had to do was cut the ball off and drill a small hole into the stem. For now it is just bolted to the Visor but eventually I think I'm going to have it setup to extend much like the real thing. But like I said, its bolted and certainly cosmetically it looks great...
It is just cosmetic, it doesn't open. In order to get to the inside you need to disconnect the base panel, and go from underneath.
For now, I'm using a piece of perspex with a grey coat of paint on its reverse as the side screen. Eventually I want to get one of those digital photo frames, but like I said at the start with finances having to go else where I am going to have to find cheap alternatives, for now!
