Or better said, almost competes. Why? I thought it wasn't ready. As a perfectionist, I tend to get unhappy with how my robots are working and that is not good. Sometimes we need to take a break, step back, clear our minds, talk to other people explaining how it didn't work. This will spark some new ideas and perhaps new ways to make things work at least good enough, if not perfect. But more on the story on my blog (the link is in my signature), I'm too tired to write it again for every forum I go to.
Regardless of the failures, MiniEric gets better and better. Soon it will be able to do what a normal butler robot does, clean up, bring things, scare the cat and more. I can't wait for the second half of December and firs half of January, when I don't have much work to do. MiniEric will get my attention, I hope to get it as close as possible to my goals.
Ok, here is the video:
