Publisher Comments:

The Robots have returned! MAKE Volume 27 features a special package with robotics projects for every age and skill level. They play music; they outwit your pets; they learn from their mistakes! In addition, we'll show you how to build a special aquarium to keep jellyfish, create pre-Edison incandescent lighting, spy via the internet, and make a go-anywhere digital message board! All this and much, much more, in MAKE Volume 27.

Some of the buildable bots youll meet include:

  • Yellow Drum Machine, which roves around looking for things to drum on, then drums, records, and accompanies itself playing catchy rhythms
  • Roomba Recon, Roomba robotic vacuum with a wireless router and webcam on its back, programmed so you can drive it around your house and see what it sees from a browser window anywhere
  • The winning project from MAKEs Most Entertaining Robot contest
  • Tiny Robots made from common electronics components.

The special Robots section will also include a roundup of hobby robotics highlights, and a Primer on using the EZ-Robot controller board to turn any animatronic toy into a fully controllable robot that recognizes faces and responds to voice commands.
