Android fan boy creates green robots from trash cans and some electrical parts
We have seen the kind of outrageous things people do which are driven by their love for Apple gadgets- like the story we heard where a guy traded his kidney for iPad 2. Here is what Android fans do- create Android robots from trash cans. The Taiwanese guy here got hold of a trash can, painted it green, put wheels at the bottom and used a few electrical components to get this working. There is a receiver inside under hood with an Arduino microprocessor and some circuitry that control its movement. He worked on this for 3 years and threw in $100 worth of parts and he had a robot that could charm y7ou and help kill a few minutes.
