R2Taupo, a BASIC STAMP II-brained robot with speech. Made of mostly junk-box parts, uses the "TOPO" robot drive design. His head turns, with a non-modified servo and contains LED's and an IR motion sensor. Its basic purpose is to wander, avoid obstacles, play tunes and gab. The head was made from a KC Fried chicken promo glass. The CPU housing is a Carrier wall thermostat. Drive mounts are sheets of hobby aluminum. Power is from a rechargable 7.2V RC battery. Two modified servos provide motion and steering. Time to build about 1 day, programming, 2 days. First robot attempt with the BASIC STAMP. Great Chip. Complete schematics, source code and photos available on the web site.
