Melvin is a custom built robot made from an old Tomy Hearoid body and head, Brian the Brain head and EZ-Robot EZ-B V3.
The project started in December 2012 however has been on hold for around 12 months now due to lack of time and motivation.
Building Melvin has helped me learn a lot about robotics and has refreshed my knowledge of electronics and programming. While he may be incomplete he is still functional and can already perform more than he could if he was still a Tomy Hearoid, in fact he can already perform more than many “advanced” robots which cost in excess of $10,000.
