It's been a very crazy past few weeks. I took a day off today. Yes! I admit it. I took a day off... And I built a robot:) Felt great to be back in the hacking saddle!

This Wall-E hack from DJ Sures turned out great! DJ used the EZ-B Robot Kit to build an amazing real life Wall-E! He added the camera from the kit to Wall-E's head for visual tracking. He then added a horizontal neck servo and vertical head servo. Now this Wall-E can visually track motion, color and faces in two dimensions... Up, down, left and right!

For extra character, DJ added Wall-E sounds to actions and some voice commands. He whistles when asked to follow your face. He sighs and moans when his favorite red ball is taken away from him. Do not worry, he quickly perks up when asked to dance to the movie's familiar music score.

Be sure to watch the video and see this Wall-E in action!

What Wall-e was used to make this robot? I really want to give this a try, I know I read that it was the ultimate wall e, but this unit looks smaller. I have an ultimate and it's 17 inches tall and comes with a white remote that enables you to program a sequence of moves. It also has a back pack to hold and plug in an mp3 player.
