I, for one, welcome our new robot-dinosaur overlords.
Make has a story up today with a link to a piece of software built by hackers that allows you to completely program your Pleo robot.
It allows Pleo owners to create their own performances giving them control over Pleo’s various motors including the ability to import existing animations from the original Pleo library, with the added capability of adding and synchronizing sounds to movements. Skits are then assigned to the various touch sensors on Pleo’s body allowing them to be triggered by a touch to that location, or they can also be run automatically on startup.
You can check out the video below to get a good idea of what they’re talking about. So, now I want to see choreographed interactions between LEGO Mindstorms and MySkit Pleos! Get to it, people! Link to MySkit. Link to Robots Rule.
