The sky is the limit when you think about what you can do with a programmable computer. Check out the video below to see how Harvey Moon programmed an Arduino to be a robotic artist.
After you get a simple program running on an Arduino, you are ready to create your first bot. The objective is to build a bot that can move 10 feet in a more or less straight line without wheels. Here's a good website to get you started. Use these designs to get ideas on how to build walking bots. If you base your design on one of these, you must include something uniquely yours.
I will provide the Arduino, servo motors, breadboards, wires, and batteries. Everything else you need should be brought (not bought) from home. Let's reuse stuff we'd normally throw away.
