New robot being planned

Hi,

It's been a long time. However, I'm finally getting out of my house and moving into a motorhome.

However, until I can convince my girlfriend to join me, I will be lonely in the driver's seat. So I'm planning on making a droid head and put it on top of an old chassis that I found that is tall enough. I want to put this robot in the passenger seat and make comments about the other drivers. And perhaps my driving. :)

Quadruped Sneak Peak!

In the Grapes of Wrath, there was a turtle that had a lot of symbolism, and in English class, you can basically do anything for the final project. So I thought, what the heck, I'll just play my strengths! Below is a rough CAD using 3d-printed parts and MG996R servos. Electronics are not really shown, shell is not missing (like there's a CAD of a salad bowl out there), and the head has been remodified to have a more "turtle" look. Photos of the final product coming soon.

Getting a Robot to Determine Its Own Truth

This piece describes an approach I am working on for an upgrade to SuperDroidBot “Anna” and a sharable brain service I am working on.  This is obviously only ONE approach to getting a robot to have a concept of truth.
