can i still add a laser, speaker, led?

in my robot SC-QR-1 i have allready used all 8 servo-ports.

but can i still ad a laser(to see where it looks), a speaker(for it to call hor help or showing some sound-emotions..   etc.) and some leds(like a red to show power, white/bright to help my "primary-back-mounted-not-night-vision-spy-camera") 

and if yes would the servos disturb the lasers, speaker and leds?

and i was also thinking, stuff like the sharp ir sensors have ir leds in them, could i attach an led or laser to those pins??


please reply!! :D

picaxe as a turret controller?

i just finished a turrent with 2 DOF =180 degree right/left and 180 degree up/down.

now..   i would like to have a camera on it(and other stuff like roborealm) to make it autonomus and motion detecting! :D

and right now i have a spare picaxe, but would that ever work with a camera?? or even roborealm for that matter?

and if not(my guess..) then please help me chose a good controller to work with my turret(or sentry?)!

please comment!  :D

what is wrong with my code?!

i dont know what's wrong with my code!

i made a simple code that should make my robot simply avoid walls, stuff etc.

i placed SC-QR-1 (my robot's name) upside-down and pressed [F5] (the "run" shortcut) and watched him move his cute little robot legs..     WTF?

the new code seemed to work untill the walk part was over and he started to turn..    ..left.        and then again left and again and again..    etc.

he is suposed to keep walking!!!
