Guy Makes Real-Life WALL-E The Robot
This is a video of DJ Sures and his homemade robotic friend WALL-E because, presumably, he doesn't have any actual human friends. Hey, neither do I, but you don't see me building robots, do you?! No, you don't. But you may catch me talking to stuffed animals. Also: myself on the Subway. Don't play with your wiener, don't play with your wiener, don't play with your wiener.
The bot has a camera for an eye, voice recognition, and object tracking. The Wall-E robot uses an EZ-B Bluetooth Robot controlled and the software functions use the EZ-Builder software that is included with the robot controller hardware. Inside the bot are five different servos and an eBay procured 2.4GHz wireless camera.
There's a five-minute video of WALL-E showing off his motion-tracking and dancing capabilities after the jump, which I recommend jumping around. However, I cannot condone jumping around in the street screaming 'HIT ME HIT ME!' *thinks* I take that back. I condone that wholeheartedly.
Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to The Superficial Writer, who claims he's already cleaning his b-hole for a probing. Probably by a lover.
