I was thinking about embedding a computer inside the robot, my concerns are: how do you operate it without a screen? for example if i were putting it inside an R2D2 or WALL-E robot that don't need a screen. Do you all plug in a screen every time you turn it on?
Which mini-itx board/system? i know about the DELL FX160 $40 but then i gotta buy rams, hdd, usb wifi/bluetooth/sound card, which adds up. Looking for the cheapest solution that runs decent and compatible with Windows 7 if possible for speech recognition. Already have a SSD on hand.
