Quiet, but not dormant

Haven't posted for a while on LMR, but that doesn't mean I'm not working on a robot! I've researching the heck out of circuitry and components that I need for my latest project. The chassis is built and the insides are coming together.  I don't want to post it just yet, but it's name is I-CORA.  Since my background isn't in electronics, I've been reading books and teaching myself logic circuits and PICAXE. With three kids and a busy job it takes a few weeks to get thru a book. I have several I"m reading now to try to get smart enough to get design the circuitry I need.

Alliance of Droids - Companion Robot - Help needed!

Hello everyone. Just so everyone knows, I am an absolute beginner when it comes to electronics and that sort of stuff. I built my own R2-D2, but it wasn't motorized.

I want to build a companion robot for the Alliance of Droids - my charity. I was planning to use some Arduino's for the project, as well as a controller system.

I want to know the estimated cost, the parts I would need, and some more information.

If anyone would be interested in helping me, please visit my website @ www.allianceofdroids.com.

Thansk for your help.
