Let's Make Robots!

Suggest Walter's Vocabulary (Closed)

*** Update ***

Well, that's all, folks!

I have sent off my list to my voice guy. Thank you all for all your suggestions. I spent a ton of time on youtube finding most of the references people have mentioned and decided to go in a slightly altered direction.... Walter is just going to have to speak with different voices. I.e. a British guy doing the Indian guy from "Short Ciruit" just isn't funny --Now, the actual Indian guy doing his lines is funny. So walter is just going to have his "standard" voice and at times will just have to interject [sp] funny quips. So there. In addition, I think he might have some background music as well --You know, just some "strolling around the house" music...

Thanks again, guys.


Well folks,

Walter is all wired up and I have re-coded all of his sub-systems. I am now syncing up personality to the main drive code. This involves new head moves (you should see my new head "teaching pendant"), eye colors and of course, speach. Now I am about to send off a new list of phrases to my Walter voice guy in the UK so he can start recording walter's new lines. I have a pretty good list going but I am very open to any suggestions you guys might have. Bear in mind that walter is now (almost) a "stays on" pet... He is a cm from docking and charging himself so really, I am wicked close to having a true electronic pet that roams the house all day long. Think about anything you might say on a stroll or what you might muse to yourself on an average boring day.


Obscene shit that would be funny to hear a British robot say...

Either way, it's all good.

Well, I'm probably a bit late but I have an idea for Walter. An FM radio reciver. You could use the FM radio receiver from SparkFun, the AR1010. Then it could act as a runaway alarm clock too. Just like that little alarm clock robot thing, Clocky I think.

What about some more famous film phrases:

Bite my shiny metal ass.  (Blender, Futurama)

Must destroy mankind.... ohh lunch time.  (Homer Simpson)

Hasta la vista, baby. (Terminator)

Klaatu, barada nikto. (The day the earth stood still)

You're talking to me? (taxi driver)

These are quite obvious but I didn't see them posted before...

"All LMR are belong to us!"
"Let's make robots!"

Since it's official LMR TWSS weekend one might add "TWSS" to the latter one :-)


- Christ this house is cold. Why don't you use gas like every other human?

"Its time to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and im all out of gum"


Basically any quote from duke nukem will work :)



No ones mentioned the pain in the diodes yet :)

How about rockin' some Marvin the Paranoid Android from Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy? Perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but you could play some of these when Walter's power is getting low. Y'know, when he's feeling down?

"Don't pretend you want to talk to me, I know you hate me."

I think you ought to know I'm feeling very depressed

I'm not getting you down at all, am I?

Pardon me for breathing, which I never do any way so I don't know why I bother to say it, oh God, I'm so depressed.

Funny, how just when you think life can't possibly get any worse it suddenly does.

Do you want me to sit in the corner and rust, or just fall apart where I'm standing?

Would you like me to go and stick my head in a bucket of water?

Life's bad enough as it is without wanting to invent any more of it.

Wearily I sit here, pain and misery my only companions.

Why stop now just when I'm hating it?

Life, loathe it or ignore it, you can't like it.

I won't enjoy it.

Well I wish you'd just tell me rather than try to engage my enthusiasm.

Why should I want to make anything up? Life's bad enough as it is without wanting to invent anymore of it.

Life! Don't talk to me about life.

Wearily on I go, pain and misery my only companions. And vast intelligence, of course. And infinite sorrow.

"Now the world has gone to bed,
Darkness won't engulf my head,
I can see by infra-red,
How I hate the night."

"Now I lay me down to sleep,
Try to count electric sheep,
Sweet dream wishes you can keep,
How I hate the night."


when a command is given

yes sir (see jeeves and wooster for the idea )

Bond, Walter bond.
"Why, oh why was I programmed to feel pain?"
