Well Christmas is over and I now have 2 more robots added to my collection. First one is the ER-1 from Evolution. Wife purchased it for me for Christmas. I didn't get any of the additions to it yet but I do plan on purchasing them. So far from what I have used of the ER-1 its pretty cool. Object recognition works well for items that don't change. But for things like yourself its a little more tricky. I havne't tested it yet but I am hoping that I will be able to use the recognition and have it focus on my skin tone to recognize me no matter what color shirt I am wearing.
Second robot added to my collection is the R2-D2 robot. I had been eyeing it for a few weeks now and right after Christmas Fred Meyers happened to have it on sale. Normally $109.99 on sale for $69.99. This is pretty cool little item. I kinda suprised that it was able to recognize my voice to the commands right out of the box. No training of my voice required. I do plan on setting up the ER-1 and playing around with both of them to interact with each other.
Been off work for a complete week and haven't done a dang thing. Bought another book on the AVR microcontroller but haven't read any of my books.
