Have you ever been reading a book and you arms start to feel tired and sore? Well, not any more, there is is a new, easier way to read using only a build it yourself robot, some connecting pieces, a small toy rubber tire tread, a book, and a tin can.
What is code?
What is a robot?
A robot is a very unique piece of equipment which is used in many ways. Robots are very important and are used in many ways. A robot is a machine designed to execute one or more tasks automatically with speed and precision. But do you know what a robot is made of or what it resembles? You will walk away knowing significantly more about robots than you do right now. Robots have many parts. One of which is the sensor, sensors are very important because they react to heat, light, and pressure which they then send back to control the robot’s operation. The most important part of the robot is the program. The program is the part of the robot that tells it what to do, and how to do it. Without these parts a robot would never function correctly. Did you know that most robots resemble some type of life form such as a human or animal. Some examples of robots that resemble humans are 4m tin can robot and mip. So the next time you hear the word “robot” you will think about what robots resemble and the two main essentials.
For my genius hour project I decided to make a robot turn book pages. At the beginning of the year when we did our passion brackets in the final round I could not decide between reading, and robots so I decided to combine them. I made this project come to life by thinking outside of the box, working through problems I hit along the way, and never giving up. This project works by the robot sitting on a slant while a wheel with a rubber tire tread on it lightly brushes against a book page making it slightly go up. After that an arm attached to the other wheel comes around and hits the page so it turns all the way, therefore turning book pages. This is how I made my project work using a build it yourself robot, some connecting pieces, a rubber tire tread, a book, and a tin can.
