is the mother of all Lost in Space robot links, The
B9 Robot Builders Club. You'll find lots of reference
photos here, lists of people to consult for help (with links to their
sites), other folks who sell parts, and many how-to pages to help
with your project. Annual dues help support the club and get you access
to members-only areas of the site, plus a subscription to the discussion
Greiner is a member of the B9 Robot Builders Club
and has documented every step of his robot project in detail, including
photos. His site shows how he did everything, from making and installing
numerous parts to wiring, motorizing, and painting. His page on
making knee hinges helped me figure out how to do mine.
this site is no longer updated, B9Helpers.org
serves as an archive of material for the B9 builder. Many drawings
and informative articles are available on the site, so it's still
worth checking out.
Monroe's site, The Magnetic Lock,
has been a great source of information about the Lost in Space robot
for years, whether you're building one yourself or just interested
in the B9. Besides building tips, Dan has an online store where you
can get, among other things, his licensed Robot Ramblings CDs to give
your robot a voice.
building a robot is beyond your means but buying one isn't, B9 Club
president Mike Joyce
now sells licensed replicas that have no equal. Limited to 150 copies,
Mike's robots come with remote-controlled animation, custom voice
tracks recorded by Dick Tufeld, and accuracy beyond compare. His site
will explain all the details.
