Hovis Eco And Ezb

Can the Hovis Eco be made to work with the EZB? I have been looking at this bot for a while and am really close to getting it but I want to be able to intregrate the ezb with it for personality and a little better servo control.

Fun fact: I sold a RS Media on eBay back when they were going for 700-800 dollars a pop. Best sale ever. (I made 500 dollars! :D)

P.S. I bought it for 300 so i sold it for 800, i made a 500 dollar profit

Ezb reordered! Waiting for the preorder will enable me to get used to my bot using the current programming.
Now just to get the camera hammered out

My Eco shipped yesterday. And they confirmed it is the Eco plus model. Big differences... Gyro added, hand sensors, emotion head which included LEDs for the eyes and also a touch sensor for the head.
So compared to other bots around the same price range the Hovis really has a ton of features. And the thing looks great! At least in my opinion.
Really looking forward to getting it here, built and figuring out how to integrate the ezb with it.

hovis is an excample for many robots.
great he's bin chipped.

Yeah I am not a fan of "naked" robots. I mean there should be some sense of the humanoid there even if there is only a decent torso and head.
It seems like the other bot company's just decided that aesthetics weren't important somewhere along the line.
I would have loved to have seen Sonys Qrio hit the market back in the day. The Darwin Mini looks promising. Depending on its specs that could be a great platform for an ezb.
But other than those along with JD there really hasn't been great looking robots in my opinion. Granted I am in the arts field so I tend to look at designs of things.

the darwin cost way too much and isn finiched on the backside legs.
the jd looks cute but there's room for improvement do.
the qurio is great robot.i have one as webcam.

You have a Qrio?
In regards to the Darwin they are coming out with a mini version that is supposed to retail for $500.00. It is half the size of the normal Darwin.

I really like the Manoi. If it wasn't 3,000 dollars here in the states I would have got one.
I told my wife last night I am starting a savings fund for the Nao. When they were released to developers they were $4500. The US Nao distributor said they are also going to be released for retail. He didn't have a time frame as to when but said it was coming.
Only makes sense. They have been working on him since 2007 I believe. At some point a general release simply is good business.
And I will be right up front with money in hand.

I saw that. I got my tracking yesterday so it is on its way officially.
I actually can buy a NAO if I want. I found someone who has one they are selling but even used they are expensive. It is too bad because it is the latest model that they released. I would love to get it but as I confirmed yesterday they are going to have a public release quite possibly this year.
