    This is freaking amazing!

    Some technical descriptions of the CRAZY amount of systems you have at work would be neat to see.  And I have to ask, what was the iPod for?  Did Zoltar have a themesong?

    Nice work!  You have my vote!

    WINNER  is what it should say,  this one in my opinion is tied with the working powerloader from aliens  costume from a few years ago.

    That's great news - this has the making of a site classic.

    Make sure you include a video of it driving around.

    (And if you need any help, contact one of the Volunteers)

    Wasn't Zoltar the nasty guy (who turned out to be a girl) from "Battle Of The Planets", so many years ago?...Anyway, a very interesting instructable. Now, please, keep going with your instructible ideas, learn, modify, but please, keep going. There is nothing more surprising that what people are interested in...Which really means, no matter (within Instructable guidelines), someone will be interested..Regards.

    Thanks! - I only know zoltar as a fortune teller but who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men (umm women) - I actually quite a tinkerer, and have "made" many things (sadly, or not sadly) mostly segway related.

    I have a basement full of projects, AND a hard drive full of photo's of those projects. as I go along I hope to share them all with this community!
