Now that we have that out of the way, Android Community took a break from hard news this Friday morning to show off a do it yourselfers Android mascot project. An unnamed man in Taiwan built this moving, remote controlled Android robot for around $103US dollars and it took just a weekend to build it.
The body is made out of a simple trashcan the man painted Android green. The guts running this thing are built on the Arduino platform which is a mircocontroller board for developing interactive objects, unfortunately it’s not “Android powered” although with the accessory developer kit and a similar body who knows what someone else may come up with.
This remote control Andy doesn’t actually walk on two feet. The creator put together a full wheel kit that, according to videos found here, enables Andy to travel forwards, backwards, turn around and in circles.
