Remember that scene in the classic scifi "The Day the Earth Stood Still" where the giant robot powers up and comes to life - absolutely awesome.
Just like the scifi movies where robots suddenly power up - do things - then go to sleep, I'm trying to do that with Bob. I just got the OK from my finance controller wife to order 2 X 12 Volt digital timers from ebay. One will be for the EZ-B and one for the H-Bridge.
I think I did OK for $16 for both including delivery. Now the plan is for Bob to turn on at a set time in the morning - motor over to the kitchen and give me Weather and traffic reports and then go back to his Lounge room corner and switch off.
Now being an electronic primitive, I'm doing it this way - what I'm curious to know is - is there a better way. I know I can turn our smart TV on with an IR remote but it still needs physical intervention. Any ideas on this welcome.
