Wally - well that's what everyone calls him.
This is my first robot in a few years, I took some time off. So far everyone has said he looks like "WALL-E" So I just named him Wally. I'm still working on programming, but so far he can wander about the living room using the PING sensor looking left, right, and center to avoid collisions with furniture and people. Kind of the "Lewis and Clark" behavior described in the "Mobile Robots" book. As for the Tech Stuff; Wally has a BasicX-24 Microcontroller, My own Design Carrier Board, 2 Futaba S3003 Servos hacked as drive motors, 2 3/4" Lite flight Wheels, a Hi-Tec HS 55 servo to pan his "Head", a 5V switcher power supply for the logic and sensor, and a Parallax "Ping)))" ultrasonic sensor. He has 6 'AA' batteriwes and is currently at a hair over 14 oz. Overall I'm pretty pleased with my return to Hobby robotics.
