BoB the Biped and Me: We celebrate the Seahawks! (updated)

Just a place to put a link to the video of BoB dancing while I applaud. I'll update with more info in the future. Gotta meet my buddy at the pub in a few minutes, hence the brevity.

There are four total dance moves, I think the video only caught three of them (they're randomized).

Update: July, 14th, 2013-

Customizing BoB with little modules

So I am sure all of you are now aware of who BoB is. Recently K12 and I have been talking about getting some BoB instructional videos up on YouTube to further make his construction easier and introduce him to non LMRians. Through this due process we have exchanged code, pictures of BoB and other extraneous things. K12 kindly gave me the Solidworks files for BoB and asked that I make some 'attachments' for him.

BoB the Biped and me with v0.91 board design

I got my pile of BoB parts from isotope yesterday and I was stoked to say the least. He even printed out a JAX name badge for me \o/ Thanks man! My BoB is glow-in-the-dark blue ABS and it luminesces as advertised. Blue Glowy BoB... mmm.

Initial test fits showed that there was going to be some grinding work in my future to make things work. One change I made to the original build list was using an HC-SR04 for the sensor. The sensor holes in the head were too close together so I removed some material on the outer edges to make it fit. It's real nice now.
