ONE OF MY OLD ROBOT!

this is one of my oldest robot named Naltz created on May 3, 2009, i have posted it on my old wikia page, it's now gone because i used the parts for my other robots. but i have created many of this things because it's mechanism is very simple, and BTW, most of his hardware are from cereal boxes that had been drawn for it's face and for the linkages.

so what does he do? well, he can talk, his mouth moves like a marionette or a ventriloquist dummy,and he has sounds from an old toy.

here are some pictures:

I’m a long time hobbyist. Started out on some smaller projects when I was younger and, as they say, the rest was history. I mostly have films to blame for this: watching stuff like The Terminator (hence the name) and Star Wars when I was (probably far too) young fascinated me and I’ve kinda been hooked ever since. 

So! Onto my first post:

     What motivated this post was my review for the Pixy CMUcam5 Image Sensor.      Actually the motivation was some issues that I had trying to make an … Read more
