About two years ago I wanted to make an '80s style robot, similar but not a true clone if the Topo or BOB robots.  These were made in the early to mid-'80s by Androbot.  I always wanted one, along with every other bot made then 🙂

I have printed the head and most of the body. Here is the head:

The head is about 18 cm (7") wide and 15 cm tall (6")  It has a separate plate that will hold two .96 OLED displays for eyes, a nose that will be a camera and neopixels for the mouth.  The hole bot will stand @50cm (20")

I had to stop the project and most at the time due to getting another job.  I may have to start it back up again.

That definitely looks like a fun project. How far along are you with the design for electronics and such?

@stven

Thanks.

I was thinking straight microcontroller based.
