A Robosapien After My Own Heart


Neil Harvey, aka LIENYEVRAH, is the wonderful Robo hacker behind the Google video in my last post. The website goes into great, and gory detail covering every aspect of the Robosapien cellphone hack.

Neil includes photos, detailed step by step instructions, copies of his hacked Robosapien videos that are mirrored on Google, a short troubleshooting guide, and even a wish list.

Some of the design approaches used are absolutely brilliant in their simplicity. For example, using a cheap dental mirror to reflect the IR control signals from the Robosapiens back where the cellphone is mounted around to the front and into the robot's IR sensors.

I can hardly wait to see what Neil does with the V2 when it's released.
