Gareth used Arduino + MotorShield to create Puff – the Magical Firefighting Dragon!

Puff is able to Put out Fires – He Scans his Head to find the Flames – he orientates towards the Flame – and Blows it out.

If he fails to blow out the Fire within 2 sweeps then the “PANIC” mode switches in and he backs away to save himself from frying his “Chips”.

Puff is an Arduino based tracked autonomus Robotic Vehicle with “Cliff” and “Obstacle” detection.

The bot uses 2 LDRs for flame tracking, plus infrared sensor for avoiding falls/collisions. (He also sports a nifty pair of glasses in the test videos. See more on the project page. [via adafruit industries]
