Introduction: HAL 9000 Computer/robot
This is a HAL 9000 robot. It has 2 hard drives, 1 cd drive, 2 microphones, 1 internal speaker, 4 cooling, and a light up eye. HAL 9000 can respond to voice commands and can read emails out load. HAL 9000 can also switch to a desktop mode which brings up normal home computer settings. It runs on 2 operating systems, one had to be windows do to the wide verity of voice recognition systems. The other operating system is Linux which is used for desk top mode and you can also edit its command data base (which is limited right now). I built This unit larger because i wanted to be able to provide instructions that every one could make and modify. The design allows for several different types of motherboards and there is plenty of space for all sorts of add ons.
When HAL 9000 is in voice mode, all it needs is a power cord. There for it is easy to transport and there is only one cord to keep track of.
There for i did my best to make this unit as practical to build and to use as possible. Thank you for reading, if anyone has any suggestions or any questions please leave comment :)
