A Taiwan-based geek spent $103 (supplies) and 3-days transforming a trashcan into a fully-functional Google Android robot. It “was painted green and he had to tweak the lid by gluing the flipper part down and apparently sanding the old gap smooth.” Video after the break. Click here for more pictures.
The RC Android bot is powered by an Arduino board and it is controlled remotely by a joystick of some sort. The little bot’s belly has an LCD that can show different messages.
