    The good thing about the program (The dog is currently using), is that it will turn off the servos when the robot goes to sleep. This extends the battery charge life some what.

    The standard programs (that comes with the Bioloid robot kit), will keep the servos running continuously no mater what.

    Now that is cool.
    Nice one. So is it completely built by you from the ground up? Besides the phone face.

    Well, I did not do the tooling to make the parts nor did I develop the software. But I did assemble the parts, program the robot and added all of the needed parts.

    That is :-

    I Installed the Bluesmirf and configured the baud rate of the bluetooth connection (BT to MCU only), using minicom. And Modified the head of the robot to allow me to mount the n800.

    It takes 12 hours to assemble all together (no breaks)

    EDIT: Here is a post I made to show how I programed the Bluetooth device :- Post link <-might need to click on it twice to get the actual page

    You can program (develop and compile your software) this robot using the AVR-GCC tool chain. yes you only need to know the C programing language. The source code is Open Source too

    More information can be found on the same youtube page links.

    Do you control it,or can it do things on it's own?

    More than I could ever do.
    The best thing I've ever made is a bird house. And that's remained unoccupied in the garden for over 2 years.

    Hi Linuxratty.

    You can controll the robot with another Nokia n770, n800 or Notebook/PC. The demos (I've posted) demonstrates that the robot can work without the remote (The robot just depends on its very own sensors in this case).

    The built in sensors it uses detects light and sound and movement. You can add tilt sensors or even gyros (gyroscope). And you can install a small web cam on it too. In fact the Nokia n800 already has one of those built in.

    "Just imagine having my robot dog walking around giving me video surveillance of my own house or back yard".

    You can add or remove as many moves as you like. And you can make the robot say anything you like as well (by remote control). The robot uses text generated voice, but I can see the potential of voice commands in the near future (just like the Asus Eee PC).
