does any one here like to take apart stuff and use it for other things... well i do i love to use what ever technology i can get my hands on then once tired of it i would make it into something else. for instance this summer i went to a yard sale and bought an old r2d2 toy and a broken RC car, i took apart the r2d2 and hollowed it out the used my dremill for making necessary cuts. then i took apart the RC car and made a controller unit i used an old vex controller as my board then un-soldiered and used the motors and the led's for my r2d2 i then hooked up my HD cam and added it to the main light on the top of r2 and though it looked like crap i had a working autonomous r2d2 unit that also worked with the vex transmitter and any spectrum unit. i would love to hear of any stories that any of you may have that has to do with mechatronics and robotics or technology in general. also i looking for an idea for my next big build if any one has anything to suggest and i build it i maybe could post a video or pics if its allowed.
