the standard wall plug "appendage" which sticks forward under its seat now
has a p0rn cam (with its own LED lighting) so it can "see" the electrical

Noise-bot aka MC Hawking the wheelchair robot has received some exciting
A Kinect for a head.
A flat panel display for a face.
A standard wall plug for a...um...well...appendage.
A custom height socket fixture for a girlfriend.
The Opencv library for a visual cortex.
I have a python script that reads data from the kinect, detects faces and
turns the robot to face them. I will be working on autonomous wandering
and following humans during tonight's Circuit Hacking Monday so feel free
to stop by and check out the bot's new duds. It may also Be-The-Hack just
before tomorrow night's meeting.
