Manatron Humanoid Robot is now submitted to Robots.Net for potential inclusion in the robot gallery. I look forward to seeing him in the near future!
I'd like to thank Ken Gracey for providing robotic parts and some computers for this wonderful project. Ken and Parallax were awesome and I'd recommend Parallax for their many fine products and most outstanding product support.
I've had the best of luck with their Basic Stamp Computers. Although I have several others, I prefer the Basic Stamp 2. This is why a handful of BS2 computers was successfully used in project Manatron.
Notice I call these computers rather than microcontrollers because after upgrading them with displays, supporting boards, memory, keyboards, sw, etc., they more resemble microcomputers.
