First test of the assembled RDO_002. Mostly working – the ‘crab scuttle’ pulse needs tweaked. This is to keep it within the constraint of the 42″ platform within the tea-house (it will be mostly unsupervised for 2 months).
Since RDO_002 has the “most extensive dynamic tunable capabilities from both in-orbit and deep space sources” we thought it would be appropriate if it chose to communicate via samples from classic sci-fi. HAL, ORAC, Robby, Johnny 5 and C3P0 are all in its repertoire (the Jetsons, Blade Runner, the Nostromo’s computer from Alien and a Clanger are in there too).
The other robots need final assembly – then its off to Japan (coals to Newcastle…)
