Astro Boy Live Hack (Part 6)
The eighties Astro Boy cartoon was likely the majority of the inspiration that got me into robotics. The whole concept of a child-like robot super hero really intrigued me. The story also had a very emotional back story that had me hooked. While I don't plan on replacing my own children with robots I do think it'd be fun to create my own version of Astro
The AtomicPi SBC will be the brain of Astro, which is quite fitting since Astro is also know as Atom Boy (and Mighty Atom). The AtomicPi runs windows 10 so many of the features of ARC/EZ-builder can be used to create a fully featured Astro Boy with audio input/output, camera, and AI features.
This week I'll be test fitting our 3D printed designs (shin, upper leg, and waist) from last week, then I'll be modifying the feet, torso, and if there's time I'll get start on the arm designs. I'm starting to ramp up and get back into the swing of this project, I know there's going to be some challenges and iteration along the way but I am up for the task!

****I apologize but I have to delay the start time as I am just finishing up another project at the moment*************
