Voice Controlled Robopet Video Is Out!

You can now see for yourself a being controlled by voice without having to punch out complex combinations of buttons on the remote control. I have succeeded in updating Robosapien Dance Machine to support other robots and I used the Robopet for my first tests, as I mentioned in earlier posts. Unfortunately, due to several table falls my first Robopet is in traction waiting for a new right rear leg motor. (If you use him on a table build a corral around the edged or gets some pillows! You've been warned!).

It's tons more fun using your voice over the remote; especially since Robopet is a very rebellious pup and frequently chooses to ignore commands and do things you didn't ask him to do! Normally I would find that irritating but since he's supposed to be a robot dog, it makes him feel more real and alive. The Robopet Video is a 3 minute long Windows Media format file and is 6 MB in size. I'll be back soon with more videos, even some outtakes from this one, and more tips on using your Robopet in exotic and crazy ways.

(Note: The current version of Robosapien Dance Machine on SourceForge does not support the Robopet yet! I'll make an announcement in several places when that version is available for public consumption).
