The Robot: A Body, Sensors and Good Progress

[ Thanks to Adam Palmer for this link. ]

"Ok, 'professionally' the body's a mess however for my zero experience in that kind of work, I'm reasonably happy. This is the front of it, top is a mounted webcam, to the left of that is a phidgets temperature sensor and top right is a phidgets light sensor. I am waiting to add 8 colored status LEDs around a small flat panel 5v stereo speaker as a 'mouth' (I got it from a Nokia phone bundle).

"Two very small stereo mics will be added to the left and right side of the top back plate. At the far top is a phdgets distance sensor, and the same on the back side. Above is also the head in a little more detail - remember it's waiting for LEDs, mics and a flat panel speaker to be added! As the plastic plate was likely to fall off at some point I reinforced it with two of those right angle thingys."
