9 Steps to Make your Own Danbo

Who is Danbo?

Danbo (ダンボー Danbō,"cardboard") is a fictional cardboard box robot character from Kiyohiko Azuma's manga series Yotsuba&!. In reality, Danbo is merely a person inside of a costume made of cardboard.

In the three-dimensional real world, we can make our own Danbos by using Seeeduino V4.2 and other Seeed hardware. In other words, these open source hardware help our Danbo beyond the dimension wall. Now I'll share the project.


Bom of Danbo Project

There need to use two Arduino micro panel. One is used for controlling the internal steering gear which make Danbo wave arms, loin and head. Another is used for the remote control, with two wireless modules.

Hardware:

  • - Seeeduino V4.2 (Arduino Compatible)
  • - Base Shield
  • - Grove – Servo * 5
  • - Wireless Communication Module
  • - Seeeduino Lotus V1.1 (Arduino Compatible)
  • - Grove – Button(p) * 2
  • - Grove – Thumb Joystick
  • - Energy Shield


Structure:

- 3mm Plank
- M3 Support Column
- M3 Flat Head Screws
- M3 Nylon Rivets
- M2 Screws
- M2 Nut
- M2 Tapping Screws
- Washed Kraft Paper


9 Steps to Meet with Your Own Danbo:

Step 1: Hardware Connection

Connect the electronic modules to each micro controller:

1) Connect Grove Servos and Wireless modulecommunication module to Seeeduino v4.2. Please refer to Table 1 for details.

(Table 1)

2) Build the remote control and connect the Grove moduletoSeeeduino Lotus. Please refer to Table 2 for details

(Table 2)


Step 2: Upload Arduino code to Danbo

1) Download the demo code: https: //github.com/Lee-Kevin/Danboard/

2) Click the"Download zip"button to download all the code.

3) Unzip the downloaded zip file into"C: \ Users \ Administrator \ Documents \ Arduino \"and delete"-master"in the extracted file name.

4) Start the Arduino IDE.

5) Click Sketch> Add File to add the Robot.ino file from"C: \ Users \ Administrator \ Documents \ Arduino \ Danboard \ Robot \".

6) Click Tools -> Board and select"Arduino / Genuino Uno"and select the correct port, as shown in the following figure.

7) Press CTRL + U to upload the code to your development board. Wait a moment and the system will show"Upload successful".


Step 3: Upload the Arduino code to the"remote control"

1) Download demo code: https: //github.com/Lee-Kevin/Danboard/

2) Click the"Download zip"button on the right side of the page to download all the code.

3) Unzip the downloaded zip file into"C: \ Users \ Administrator \ Documents \ Arduino \"and remove"-master"from the extracted file name.

4) Start Arduino IDE.

5) Click Sketch> Add File to add the Controller.ino file from"C: \ Users \ Administrator \ Documents \ Arduino \ Danboard \ Controller \".

6) Click Tools -> Board and select"Arduino / Genuino Uno"and select the correct port, as shown in the following figure.

7) Press CTRL + U to upload the code to your development board. Wait a moment and the system will show"Upload successful".

So far, the remote control of all software work is basically completed.
