My name is olivier, french, 31 years old, and electronic/robotic noobie.

I ve recently bought a RS v1, i ve  read a lot of way to hack the robosapien with an arduino board.

My goal : Hack the robosapien with only one dockstar (1,2 ghz arm processor, 128 ram, 4 usb ports and serial port). The dockstar will serve as

-wifi client (ever working),

-webcam server (ever working with mjpeg streamer, need to test motion too)

Hi guys, I've recently purchased an interactive R2D2 and it should be here in about a week. I was wondering what kind of hacks you talented people know of that I could perform on the bot, and any suggestions you might have? I've searched extensively online and found a few that are mainly cosmetic, and a lot that were started ideas but failed to see the end. Any help would be appreciated :) thanks.

Hi Guys.

Just an update to whay I have been doing lately.  I have added a modifacation to my 2 RS Medias. My first rsm had the usb serial hack done and updated to the v2 mod as we know. my new second RSM is going to be a bluetooth serial hack, so I will have 1 with the usb hack and the otherbluetooth.  But for me to do the bluetooth hack I need to upgrade the bot to V2.

Creepiest Mods

Remember that thing in Toy Story?

You could kind of do that with a roboquad.  I gave my RSV1 away to my designer's kids because it freaked me out to have a humanoid with a remote control.  I didn't like that much.  What would be the creepiest mod (physical, software, any kind really) you could pull on any popular robot toy?
