WALL-E Email Alerter

I love a good WALL-E hack and here is a cool one where WALL-E will alert you when you get new emails. TotoroYamada from Lets Make Robots has some great documentation of his build. I can think of lots of cool applications for a robot that can get my attention by waving its arms around. 🙂 If this was made a few months ago I think it would have been in this Top 10 WALL-E Hacks list.

Thanks Totoro.

"The robot is actuated by three 9g mini-servos, and controlled by a SD21 servo driver and a picaxe 18x… i know, it’s a bit like killing a mouse with a rocket launcher, it’s just that i want to get used to the board before building my next robot, but i have to order a bunch of 08M for that kind of experimentation, as soon as i get them i’ll do the brain transplantation."
