Lots and lots of AA and D cells
Modifications: Headlights, Volume Control, Gait Adjustments
Aesthetics: Gold Leaf Finish, Flat Black Accents
Design Philosophy: I bought this RSV2 for my nephew in order to illustrate to him the three components of robotics that make it so rewarding: Mechanics, Behavior, and Aesthetics.
Robo Sapien was the perfect basis for such a project, as there are tons of resources available for modifying them. I added headlights to the head which are tied into the same power supply as the video tracking camera. This mod improves the robots color recognition drastically.
I then added a volume control, since these guys are pretty loud and obnoxious without one. Finally, I spruced up the exterior with Gold Leaf and model paint.
