I'm not brave enough for "live hacks" yet, but this shows me updating my software, explaining how I built him, trying to remember which ports his servos are connected to (oops) and how I was able to use the stock toy switches with some resistors on 1 ADC line.  I'll have to actually make him do something cute in a future video.

He is not the Ultimate wall.E that most builders get to hack, I accidently got a smaller non-motorized version (which I don't recommend due to size) but I've come to like the little guy.

Oh! You gonna add the camera in the eye like I did with my last revision?

DJ, sadly no.  I can't fit a camera in the head.  This Wall.e is too small and just barely holds the ioTiny.

Ah yah - that's because it's the super tiny one. If you fit it, maybe the bottom of the PCB and cable of the camera would have to be under the one eye... hmmm

Oh wait - it just made sense... add the camera to the chest in the upper grey area. Think it'll fit in there? Because then you can specify the setting in the camera control for a stationary camera. I find the stationary camera tracking is WAY better than a servo camera.

Eww, I haven't used that before, but I would love to add a camera to him.  Thanks for the idea DJ!!  Looks like Wall.e will get some surgery soon.

It took me a while to get back to this little guy, but I was able to add a camera in his chest where his fake power meter sicker is.  Everything is so tightly squeezed in there, I'm envious of the larger Wall.Es, lol

Right on Justin! Looks great! I'd love to take a peek inside!

I love that little guy! Looks good! I hope you share some of what went or will go into it. 

I also like your desktop colors for ARC. I might try something like that.

Thanks for all the positive feedback!:D
I did a little walk through of the "guts" that shows how little room there is.

Hey Justin. Man, you're right. What a tight fit. Great work on everything. I'm really impressed with the arms you built. Old school woodwork. 

Thanks for showing this. I love watching stuff like this.

Wow Justin, I’m also impressed that you fit all that in there! Excellent work! 

Thanks for the video. I don’t think pictures would have done it justice, so a video walk through was a great idea!

Justin,
  Just saw your video on YouTube, and loved it.
You were very resourceful sorting out a place for everything.
Nice work old friend, thanks for sharing.

Justin,
I just watched your video.  I too am impressed with your wooden arms and how you fit everything in that small space.  Nice work and thanks for sharing.
