Cambot - Season 7
« on: April 29, 2017, 12:19:49 PM »
Hey guys. I'm new to bot building ,but wanted to share my recent Cambot build from season 7.

I tried to get fairly screen accurate for my limited budget ,but I think it turned out pretty good. 

Building materials :

- Two Copco lettuce crisper bowls.
- Clear plastic sheets (to go around the center) ,and for the lens.
- PVC pipe in the middle to hold the pieces together ,and for the recording eye socket.
- Programmable LED Name Tag
- Hydrofarm black tubing (for the inside of the lens)
- LARGE 10mm LED GLOWING EYES HALLOWEEN Set (from ebay)
- Black velcro from an old camera bag
- Hard plastic cup. Cut to size.
- Lots of electrical tape.
- Picture Hanger / Wire


The eye is ran off of a 9 volt within the lens ,and a small cord runs out of the back to charge the led name tag.

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!!

I second a tutorial!  I built one four years ago that used none of the original parts, and red tape to cover the seams between the bowls.  It looked cool, but wasn't very accurate.  But THIS... THIS Cambot is super cool!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Bob makes copies of his bowl to sell someday.  ;D

Thank you everyone. I tried to make it look as close to screen accurate as possible. (Without the real parts).

My son was born shortly after I posted this. So I haven't had much computer time lately ,but I'll try to post a tutorial as soon as things calm down a bit.
