Building BB-8

I’m building BB-8. This should have come before my post about adding an aluminum band to BB-8’s dome, but non-linear writing is good for the soul (or something like that).

The main body and the dome are both made out of foam. The dome also has aluminum and 3D printed parts on it.

I’m using a hamster drive, which (in this case) is a four-wheel drive robot inside the body to drive it. I’m also building a ball-balancing robot to keep the head on the body.

I’ll be posting more about BB-8 as it gets further along.
