For the first workshop “analog robots” Christian Faubel and Seppl Noth of Strudel.org as well as Amy Franchescini of futurefarmers joined us and 4 students of the academy of media arts cologne.
After a short introduction of analog electronics we started experimenting with breadboards and the oscillating analog circuit to make the robots walk. After soldering the circuit the beloved H-bridges had to get to work and sensors hat to make the robots sensible for their invironment. In one week we built about 6 robots which could more or less walk, roll and paint while watching japanese trash-robot-movies and listened to a lecture of Amy,
During the presentation days of our school the robots would walk around the altar of the Trinitatis church and interact with the visitors and their children.Tweet
