At Orionrobots, Danny builds robots, electronics, gadgets and stuff that moves. I get kids like my regular helpers Jonathan and Helena to join in, and occasionally others too. I aim to make some of the cool robotics things easy for anyone to build, and push the boundaries of what is easy. Oh and just to have lots of fun doing it too…

You can support my work at Orionrobots on Patreon where there are also previews, polls and other perks for supporters.

    So throughout my build, I’ve been repeatedly thinking of a feedback system for the robot. Since I cannot rely on Wifi - and it’d be inconvenient even if I could, I’m not going to connect a terminal to my robot and monitor it from a PC. So therefore, the robot needs to have other ways to tell me what it’s doing.
