I am working on a new LISP program for Robot Betty9 that will allow my robot to spout forth poetry and not just any poetry, but poetry based upon how she is feeling at the time based on conversations she has had. In other words, if she is a bad mood, her word choices will be on the negative side. If she is happy or perhaps even "in love", words of love will emanate from her digital lips.

This new program will be merged with my Leaf code. (See "Leaf the AI Robot", www.leafproject.org.)

Also, I have purchased a new servo interface board, the SD84. I intend to use it for better control of her servos.

Her power roller skates are working, but using VEX servos was a bad idea. They barely pull her around on a flat surface. I need to upgrade the servos to about triple the torque and use metal gears and chain. Just time and money, but mostly time (and money.) :)
