@Wolfie Can't wait to see FRED melting hearts with it's cuteness
BUT FRED will live again lol
Will be watching this one with a close eye.
Today I found a little old thrift store that I did not know about before and I found fred in a pile of junk so I picked him up and asked the little old lady "how much" well she asked me where I plan on taking him.
I said I was going to take him home and that I was going to dissect him lol
All she did was smile and say have a great time with him and would not let me give her any $ at all for him
All I could say was "Thank You You made my day"
Now I think it will be a hard build for me as much of it will need to be completely rebuilt to make the legs work right lol
It may take some time to do lol
these next photos will give you a better idea of its size
Light up eyes ..... have not seen them working yet
Working Mouth with pressure sensor in it
What I will add to it is pressure sensors in the feet and maybe a light in the dog caller to flash when it talks just like in the movie "Up" I thing that dogs name was Doug
lol I can see it now lol
Fred the blind little dog that can speak lol
But I will replace them with RGB leds or 2 cameras if I can fit them in
If i try to work with what it there it will be alot harder than if i just keep the shell and add in all new parts
The origial mechanism of the fred looks similar to a wooden mechanical mammoth that me and my son built a couple of years ago, is there not enough room inside his body for a motor shield to assist with movement?
Just not to sure on how I will make it work :S lol
I have decided not to reuse any of the old parts other that the shell shin and "bones"
I'm just getting ready to "break" little Fred's little legs lol
oh and cut the skull apart
so Fred can tilt his head a bit
with out cutting the skull Fred can only pan and not tilt
