My name is Paul Smith-Keitley and I work as a freelancer for the Tablet Academy here in the UK, we have just ordered a pair of JD Bots to use at the Education Innovation Conference alongside some Moway Bots.
I am trying to find out how tall they are, well actually all dimensions so I can locate some transit cases.
Also I was wondering what you recommend as far as programming to wow people?
Thanks for the help.

Not sure how tall he is, perhaps someone who has one can chime in with some measurements for you....
Welcome to the forum!
JD is 12.5" (31.75cm) tall, 6.75" (17.15cm) wide from shoulder to shoulder, and ~3.5" (8.9cm) thick with wires.
Inside the JD example, if you play the song provided you'll see JD do and song and dance which impresses audiences
You can always start from the example and move from there.
Edit: @RR you are a fast one
To send a tweet would take a bit more work, but through scripting, and maybe some 3rd party stuff you should be able to have the robot send tweets. From a script, you can do an HTTP Get, but Tweets are done through an HTTP post, with some other stuff to handle authorization. A quick google search of "send tweet with http get request" pointed to some links that look like it might not be too hard to set up some kind of intermediary java or python web page to receive the request for the robot and forward it to Twitter. A little more research needed than I have time for today to be sure.
1) download and install ARC for windows
2) load the JD project and assembly your JD
3) fine tune the servos
4) visit the preferences and configure your Twitter username and password from the top ARC menu
5) click the gear on the camera control
6) select scripts tab in the camera control config menu that loaded when you pressed the gear
7) press the edit button for the on tracking start script
8) click the Cheat Sheet tab that generates code for you automatically
9) scroll down until you see the camera device title
10) look in the camera device section for a ControlCommand() that reads "send tweet"
11) click on the send tweet code and it will add to your code
12) press save to save the script
13) press save to save the config menu
14) select your tracking type in the camera device
Now when ever an object is detected, the image will be uploaded to your configured Twitter account.
How the heck did I miss that.....
@Paul. PS... it will be great to see video of the show! EZ-Robot needs all the help we can get with PR
Poor @paul, we hijacked his thread real good!
