Hi,

I'm looking for some advice. At this moment I own a lego mindstorms nxt,
but it really dissapointed me with its possibilities. Thats wy im looking
for a replacement. I got some points that I really like to see in my next
robot.
- It should be a humanoid.
- It should have a speaker for speach
- It should have a mic.
- it should have a camera
- It really want it to be able to run autonomous (with maybe some limeted
recognition functions) but also controlled with the pc as "brain" via wireless communication.
I don't mind if I have to buy some modules, if their are implemented quite easy. Im not a technician ;) but a programmer...

I hope you can give me some advice.

Regards
Patrick

I don't think anything currently exists off the shelf that meets your requirements. Well.. Maybe this..

http://www.plasticpals.com/?p=14931

It looks really nice and the vstone bots are top notch, but it's quite expensive at the moment.

I believe this year is going to finally bring sub $100 mainstream motherboards in form factors small enough for hobby robots. So if you're not interested in the building aspect you might want to wait a year.

Looks realy nice, but that one is just 3 times too expensive around 3000 euro. But if it is not off the shelf, is there maybe a kit that is not that hard to extend so it will do what I want?
