Baby Joe is another technology demonstrator built a lot like Tetherbot. The only difference is his size, the addition of a Basic Stamp II and a Battery pack. Other than that he does the same things. Again I used the no 3rd wheel system. This did not present any problems and kept the bot's profile low. I added calibration port hole for the IR tuning potentiometer. I think this was the best feature of the new bot. Now I could calibrate the eyes with a debug program and then set the bot off to avoid things at different distances. Because I reused an old project box I could not fit the IR receiver inside the box, but no worries, it's only impact was on aesthetics.
