How I Replaced Roboquad's Eyes and Mouth Part 2Posted by RobosapienV2-4mem8 on Wednesday, 27 June 2007
In Part 1 of this incredible series, our fearless hacker RobosapienV2-4mem8 cracks open the Roboquad exoskeleton. Is this alien dissection from Area 51? Nah, but it sure looks like it.
Here in Part 2, the exploration continues -- complete with photo close ups of electronic innards.
In Part 3 RobosapienV2-4mem8 shares videos he has taken of everything. Don't miss a second of it.
Here are a few pics of my mouth hack for roboquad:
The main CPU
Two wires soldered to the spkr plug.
CPU showing PC1 where the TRY_ME connection is.
Roboquads neck area where two pairs of wires
have to be threaded through, quite tricky as there is not much room.
Parts of the lower neck base which
have to be removed in order to thread wires through.
Area showing head servo motor
Again: wires have to be threaded past the motor.
Two pairs of wires threaded through [tricky job!]
Face area where a 5mm hole has been bored
for 8,500mcd blue mouth LED.
The two pairs of wires [mouth LED] [TRY_ME connection]
terminated via a plug for easy access.
Head back together with LED and wires ready to be soldered.
Almost back together.
Finished Roboquad LED hacks.
