Back in the ’80s, I wanted an Omnibot. It was an RC robot with a tape deck in its chest that you could program to move around and talk. Awesome. I never got one.
But Karra’s older brother Markus did.
Now, Omni here hasn’t had the best time during the past 25 years. He’s been living in a back corner of my in-law’s basement or garage, getting grubby and being un-loved. Fortunately, I got this little guy before he went into the garage sale. I think I can rebuild him. Better… stronger… faster.
I’ve never seen the six million dollar man. But Robots are awesome. So are tape decks.
I’ll be writing a step-by-step tear down log soon, but I’ve got a lot of pictures to comb through.
