The Rumble Robot Is Here!

I’ve been thinking of about a fun technology project that I could work on with Dany (my 5 year old son) this summer. We’ve been talking about robots for a while and I’ve been looking for a good excuse to start playing around with Arduino – an open source electronics prototyping platform. So I was pretty excited to discover DinoFab’s tutorial on hacking a Rumble Robot toy and turning into your very own Arduino robot.

Rumble Robot Me-Fisto

I bought a used Rumble Robot Me-Fisto! from eBay for $15. Now I just need to get an Arduino micro-controller, a Ping ultrasonic sensor and a few other items and we’ll be all set for this project. More updates on this later…
