I have 2 bits of news.
The first is truely unbelievably amazing. Over the last couple of evening myself and my wife have been hearing strange noises coming from the attic.
Every time I went up to investigate I didn't find anything. After acouple of nights of not find anthing untoward in the attic I desided to fit a hidden camera. Guess who I
caught on camera in my.below is the photo I captured
Yes it's SANTA. I know what you thinking, "Gerber, This photo is fake and all you've done is dressed an RS media in a santa suit and put a red nose on one of his daughters
teddies to make it look like a reindeer". Now let me lay this lie to rest, there is no way I would go to all that effort just to take a photo, that a bit far fetched, and the
outher thing is I'm not sad enough at the age of nearly 40 to pinch one of my daughters teddies and dress up a robot as santa, am I now? This only leaves 2 theoretical
conculsions. The first being this is a truely authentic picture of Santa and second being that santa is a really an RS Media. Your next question may be "why is santa in
gerbers attic?" Well the answer to that is a mystery, but I have come up with a cunning plan. I am going to leave my christmas list in the attic and hide video recorder to see
if I can catch santa on video. If I do catch santa on video I will post the video here.
The other bit of news is I have nearly finished the personality generator for the RS media. I am doing some final debugging to it and a bit tweaking. It's taken me alot long to complete than I first thought as I had to overcome a few hurdle. I have intergrated the software it into the RS media control station. When I release the next version of the RS media control station will have the following feactures:
1) It will allow you to move the you robot and send commands to it as you were able to do in previous versions
2) Create personalities for the robot using text to speech and adding sound effects to the voices such as eccho, pitch, speed, chorus and reverse speech.
3) I have added basic web browser to the software so you can go directly to robot related website or if you wish you can surf the net with it.
4) I have added access to the help manual from within the software
I'll keep you posted on when the software will be ready but I am hoping to have it done before christmas. below are afew screen shots of what it will sort of look like.
(P.s. If anyone else thinks they may have see's robot santa out and about please post some picture/videos of him and let us know where you saw him)
