" Elvis Alive" Robot Hack with EZ Robot, lotiny controller, and software.
I purchased a non functional unit from E-Bay that would not complete startup.
My intention was, if I could not repair it, it would be useful for a robotic build.
After evaluation, one motor gear was not completing startup sequence.
I repaired that, and the unit completed the startup sequence.
Merne kindly sold me an extra controller that he had.
The WowWee Robot was great, but it lacked any realistic rotation motion.
I planned, and built a Rotation Pedestal that adds so much more realism to the
"Elvis Alive" Robot. I can program it for each song or let it choose up to 6 random rotations, as I did in the video.
I used a new EZ Robot HDD servo
that was superior to another digital servo
that I experimented with.
My plan of an extra additional servo
to rock the body, was not necessary, because the lazy-susan pedestal had enough flex
with the 10 lb. robot to move with it's many head gyrations.
