Hi. 

This is Skully my first Pic robot.Still under construction. I am going to make it as a multipurpose Robot.

 

I have finish working on the head movement and hacking my MP4 player for the voice. I have include several photos

of the MP4. It's quite challanging to solder the wire in very limited space.

nice head movement 

Its great you are making so much use of unused debri from other machines. Love it !

YES!!!  Now this is a robot in my taste!

Give it some creepy strobes and some simulated blood stains and you got a robot!  -lol

Checkout my Evil Dead robot. Its the same kind of thing, only a bit more noobie.

I've clearly been watching too much of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - I see a robotic skull and panic! Good work though, the up/down motion is an unusual addition.
Love it, the scull gives it so much "personality"

The Vertical movement is so cool - any chance of a close up picture of the Mechanism.

Is the vertical driven by a continuous drive servo on "cog track" - or disk drive stepper motor/mech?.

Gareth you got it man. Its from my old vcd player disk drive.
I keep looking at the head up/down mechanism and thinking I recognise it. Is it from a printer? I use to repair them.
At first sight it reminded me of one of the house robots in Robot Wars

multi-purpose in what way? will it be looking for other body parts?

I think the BorG did this at one point !

Good Luck !
