Just Beginning..

First post here, but I just wanted to share what I'm doing. 

My history: casual programmer since 20 (basic back then, COBOL, JCL, then some VB5/6 and DOS scripting, InstallShield, WIL and some C), IT manager and programmer back in the mid-late 90's. Just getting back into programming. One thing I've never been is an engineer. Though I was an aircraft mechanic in the AF, electricity is all new to me (beyond sticking a plug in a wall). I look to upgrade my knowledge there. That's why I turned to Makeblock for my first robots.

BOSS AUDIO MCBK420B Black 600 watt Motorcycle/ATV Sound System

Sound from audio jack, single dial can get super loud. The previous speakers were muffled as well, so having them at floor level helps a great deal. Battery power now goes a long way.

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.
