    Good job on acquiring the servos

    It looks very solid, nice work.

    I think that "I stole these robot servos from my wife" might be an internet first.

    Maybe he should qualify that with how many nights he had to sleep on the couch over that one!

    Re: Meet Hi No Hikari

    So first off...thanks for the kind words. My mom is out visiting, and saw Hikari doing the little side to side wobble bit. She wants one for her desk at work. I told her how much it would cost...to just sit on her desk...she wrote me a check. So Hi No Hikari will be getting a sister for christmas.

    We had parent teacher conferences today so I had plenty of time to sit there working on my robot. That was until I realized i forgot to unlock my door, or turn on the lights in my classroom...In anycase. Here is some video.

    It looked all innocent in the video just wobbling back and forth, then it starts turning and looks incredibly powerful. Nice job.

    Re: Meet Hi No Hikari

    So I was looking through the rules for humanoid and found this

    "2.2.3. The robot shall have a head"

    What is the advantage of not having a head if the robot is nowhere near 120cm. I can see it if the robot is 120 cm without a head, but if the robot is say 30 or 40 CM? And what counts as a head? Is the robot disqualified if the head falls off?

    Still waiting on UPS with Hikari's arms. They were supposed to get here today, but because of miss management they did a loop around chicago and won't get here till thursday. :-(

    Oh well...Guess I'll have to play with X in the mean time. :-) Wait...X doesn't have a head either. darn it.

    DB.. just for the "Fun" factor, I made a little head mount for Bheka when it a humanoid. It was just a piece of dowel that just fit inside a finger puppet, available at toy/party stores. Interchangable heads that were cute..stupid.. and.. fit the bill.

    Got a whole bag of finger puppets for a couple of $$..

    A lot of competitors will just tape a Dixie cup to the top for a head. They didn't give me any problems at KRGF for not having a head either.
