robosapien alarm clock

robosapien alarm clock 

here is a great hack that stella sent to us.  mark craig pulled off a really nice looking alarm clock robosapien mod using a couple pic-micros, an lcd panel, and a text-to-speech synthesizer.  i don’t think he’s finished the breakfast-in-bed software yet, but i’ll keep my fingers crossed for an update.  nicely done!

    Wow! think of the crazy stuff you could do with this!!!

    Note:If you’re on a budget then instead of using a breadboard(for the voice synthesizer) get a piece of verra board and cut it to size and wire it correctly and it’ll save you quite a bit of money.

    Really cool project!

    This site has re-ignited the hardware hacker in me.
    Okay maybe ignited isn’t a good term, but I still wanna hack stuff.

    Any tips on how a beginning hardware hacker can get started. Buy a book? Just hack away? Build a robot? I have a degree in CS, but don’t know much about electronics. Anyone have any ideas?

  5. sherwin, i’m looking forward to reading your tips. send in cool hacks that interest you and that you’d like to see here on hackaday.

    he killed robo-fraken-sap. 9v straight to the brain … no step down to 6v.

    death by electrocution.

    The 9volts killed my robosapien but I’m planning to continue with my hacking.
