Item 1 – I/O

Sufficient output to be “interesting”

  • Motors – move, dance, wiggle
  • Audio – At least beeps and boops,  possibly recorded audio, but no extra audio hardware (like mp3 decoders)
  • RGB LED Eyes – Maybe even moveable (if I have extra time on my hands)

Sufficient input to be interactive

  • Location sensing – using dual color sensors and a colored mat
  • Light sensors – need to know when it’s dark out, follow a light or find a dark corner
  • IR obstacle detection – don’t want to bump into stuff
  • IR homing sensor – to find the recharge station
  • Hall Effect Sensors – locate and play with toys
  • Capacitive touch sensing – how else is it going to know when it’s being petted?
