|Taking a month to build, finishing in June and weighing in at 31 pounds at 2 feet tall is Max the Spanish Speaking Robot (S.S.R.) fitted with a Pentium 120 processor for the speech and face as well as a Board Of Education equipped with a Basic Stamp 2. The Basic Stamp 2 controls the movement via 8 reed relays and some tank treads let this robot move about and as background music Mission impossible was the song all thanks to the help from Daryl and the floppy disk with the song. He states his name, where he is from/built, when he was activated, what he likes to do in good and bad weather as well as give smart remarks about me. He has a 110v cable that carries over 350 watts and a secondary cable for needed power to the tracks. Together they make this robot a talking robot and singing robot.
It cost around $100 because i had a lot of the parts and if you havent guessed yet it is made of k-nexs!
One thing that happend was the night before the whole system crashed but my skills brought from dos to windows in just 4 hours! Another thing was that it almost went up in flames because of too many amps going through small wires basicly a short.
