Comments
Dazey is comprised of a full sized cow skeleton(actual cow bones) that walks (actually, she roller skates), mooos, and urinates by radio control. She has windshield wiper motors providing her motive force and a motocycle battery as her power source. Approximately 13 months of work was required to complete project dazey. The main problems encountered were mechanical/structural in nature ( i.e. how to attach linkage/support struts to the bones, weight distrubution, etc.).

Since most of her parts came from either radio shaft or an auto junkyard (the cow skeleton was donated), the cost was approximately $273. Email: billr@kiva.net
