Craziest/'funnest' thing you've done with a robot?
Yes, I know 'funnest' isn't technically a word. But, what is the funniest, craziest, most amusing thing you've done with a robot/microprocessor (intentionally or not)?
Hands down, the funniest thing I've ever been a part of was a hackmod my classmates and I did back in college. Basically we took a Hello Kitty doll, tore it apart, and Frankenstein'd (I'm just making up words on the fly today) in an infrared range sensor (one eye of the doll was the LED, the other eye was the phototransistor), a small speaker, an Arduino Duemilanove, and a small electronic airsoft mechanism we had pulled out of a 1/16th scale RC tank. The 'thing' was hilarious. It had the classic Hello Kitty cuteness but a giant, metallic barrel sticking out of its chest and staples running up its back to keep all the fluffy goodness in. Whenever someone would walk in front of it, it would emit a diabolical laugh and fire off a few rounds at them.
We put it in on a desk in front of the main door to the lab during open house. Good times were had
Anyone else have some crazy stories about things you've built 'just because'? I know you do, don't hold out on us now...
