I just saw this on youtube:



And i directly knew i HAD to make one, so i ordered 2 android puppets and a lot of really cheap mini servo's ($3,17 each) on Dealextreme.

The idea is to make little scripts in EZ-Builder for every dance move and make them start via music recognition (is there such a control in ez-builder?)

Anyways, i hope they arrive soon and i'll keep y'all updated!

So it just so happens that you don't have to wait the 3 weeks to get those servos from across the ocean at deal extreme headquarters, you can get them at Solarbotics as well for a decent price!

The bots in the video are not mine,

I am waiting for components to make mine

Just got the components but the servo's were too big(!) so i had to order even SMALLER servo's from hobbyking, these are REALLY tiny.

So i put together the droid:

So i'll keep everyone updated:)

dj can you use something similar to pctx from
endurance-rc.com

its for letting you use an r/c transmitter on your computer. suppose to work like a joystick but when i pluged it into my tx and my laptop, it did not show up as a joystick control. i will try the device manager to see if i can get it to recognize it.

i think the guy above was asking about a servo recorder?
it would be nice to control my ez-b with my 5 channel spektrum dx5e because of the 2 joysticks. but the usb controller works good too

i eventually used these servo's because the blue hextronik's were too big (!).
