Friday's Idea-Omnibot

Omnibot was every boys dream in the mid 1980’s. If you had one, then you also had a complement of jealous friends, me included. Just another example of how 25 years takes away the feeling of “I have to have one” and replaces it with the feeling “I don’t want that junk, I have something much better.”

Building this out of Lego would be pretty cool, and the best part is that we could make it with many, many more functions.

  1. I have a non-functioning Omnibot 2000. No remote, and no way to control him.

    He's currently in the process of being cleaned up, gutted, and rebuilt from the inside out, using the XMOS XK-1 kits for the brains, and whatever parts I can find/salvage/steal for the rest.
