Little Johnny was inspired by the movie Short Circuit, I built him as a robot that could go with me to schools and demo's to get the attention of those I speak to. Johnny is capable of speech, body heat sensory, compass guided navigation, three degree's of freedom in each arm, bending his body and tilting his head.
