Check the website link for information. Everyone wants to own a Wall-E. A few people have tried creating their own, and that's rewarding. However, nothing compares to a robust plastic shell. My experience with building and designing custom frames for my robots have led to modifying manufactured units. The goal in this expirement was to "hack" an existing toy. The plastic was dremmeled and melted with my soldering iron to fit my components. The programming was done using a microcontroller (18F4685) with code written in C. Other then having a nice robust shell, an additional goal was personality. In the movie, Wall-e is not remote controlled. Neither is he programmable. Wall-e is an independent autonomous robot. He does his own thing.. Exploring and cruising around, etc. That's what the goal of my Wall-e is... A fun and independent personality that won't get stuck.
