-Can hear or see, or both - kinda
-Are strong, but break easily

The goal here is to build a robot, that is like a robot. It should be able to do human scale stuff, and look like a robot.
Don't get too excited - it does not end well!
This is Emma's clean up robot -
-It is supposed to:
- Here what you say
- Pick stuff up and put it away
- Look like a robot
The big challanges are: getting good motors( harvest from drills at Harbor Freight ) , controlling the motors, powering the motors, voice recognition, navigation, not catching on fire, not breaking things, not spending to much money..... -- link to drill --
Very few of these goals are completed in this instructable - but it is getting too long.
So, lets begin!
NOTE: If you follow this instructable step-be-step from begining to end, it will probably drive you insane (have you every tried following a cat all day?) I say, learn what you can, put a fresh battery in your smoke detector, and bash on.
Everybody likes videos up front - here are a few:
Video - shows basic functions - all motors running bi-directional
Video: Wheels working well (ie before they broke)
Video: Emma explains:
Video - with head - serial commands
