Why did I call it Skittles, you ask? Well, it’s got all colours in the rainbow in it because I simply don’t have enough bricks of one or two colours to build the whole thing uniformly. So I figured I may as well go completely overboard and make the whole thing completely randomly coloured. I think I really succeeded in that department.
Anyway, at the moment, Skittles is still very much in early development phase, which means that I haven’t done much other than building and wiring it all up. The wiring I’m actually quite proud of, it’s super tidy and you can hardly see any of it. I will post better pictures in a later post.
Skittles currently sports the following:
- 2 x Mindsensors motor MUXes, daisy-chained with different I2C addresses, very cool
- 1 x Mindsensors SumoEyes
- 1 x MicroInfinity CruizCore XG1300L gyro/accelerometer
- 4 x Rotacaster 125mm omniwheels with LEGO axle hub
So that still leaves one sensor port free and 3 motor ports. Who knows what I’ll end up doing with those.
Anyway, without further ado, here’s the video I made, enjoy!
