I saved all my discretionary income and was torn between buying a Nexus 7 when the 32gb version comes out or buying robot parts to get started on my real robot build (Boxbot has been fun, but not my ultimate goal). I decided to pull the trigger today and ordered a Sabertooth 2x25, some switching DC-DC converters to take the 24 volts from my batteries to 19 for the on-board Netbook and 7 for the EZ-B (24 will go to the Sabertooth to drive my wheelchair motors), a battery charger, and from EZ-Robot, some more connector cables to replace the ones I used experimenting in BoxBot, the patch cable set, and the pan and tilt kit for the camera.
When I get the body complete, I will still need an arm, and may need a heavy duty servo for the neck, but I am out of play money for now, so they will be add-ons.
I hope to get started on the build in a couple of weeks when everything is in and I am back home (going to be taking care of Mom for a few weeks when she is out of the hospital. Had heart surgery and lots of complications - no room at her place for Robot building).
