This is a lousy video but on this occasion I wanted to test the 2 cars. I could not get full speed because the parking lot is not really suitable with too many road hazards. One of these cars at full speed could easily crash because of a bump in the road. I was however able to make several adjustments to the cars. My next challenge is to find a suitable vacant parking lot?

Here is a short clip that I made just for fun as an experiment in stop motion photography. I just wanted to see if I could duplicate the effect to some extent. With some practice and a genuine background it might be fun to try and make one of those old time stop action scenes.

Iím working on a Robosapien V 2 robot. This is a fun toy robot which came out several years ago. Even if you could find a new one or one that works it will quickly fail because all the wiring to the legs is poor quality and the insulation crystallizes and falls off creating a short. Iím attempting a rewire. The plastic body parts also have become brittle and the robot is difficult to take apart without breaking the screws and plastic holders. So Iím also reinforcing with fiberglass. After all this work Iím not sure if the robot will work it may end up being just a static model.

The Robosapien V 2 is a great robot toy (more adults probably play with it then kids) made by Wow Wee. Itís called version 2 because it was an improvement over version 1 and much larger. This robot is really an amazing and complex toy. Unfortunately for WOWWEE and the people who bought this model there was a serious flaw in material acquisition specifically for the wires controlling the legs. The insulation on these wires was inferior and short-lived. The insulation would crumble off the bare wire and short-circuits were possible. There are 2 boards for this robot. One is called the brain board which interprets infrared signals from the control and sends the appropriate signal to the motor board. The motor board is basically a switching mechanism which controls the motors for movement. There are sensors which also limit movement and provide input to the brain board to reverse polarity and consequently motor direction. The sensors also serve to prevent burnout of components if the robot say for example walks into an obstacle.

The robot was originally made in the timeframe of 2005 2006 perhaps even later. Even if you were to buy a never before used brand-new unit it may run shortly and then as the leg wires short will fail. In some cases, the short may cause one of the boards to fail and there are no boards available as spare parts nor does WOWWEE support this model anymore. In its place, they made a similar robot called the RS media which has good wiring and some can actually be obtained in working order and likewise itís no longer made or supported.
Complicating the restoration issue, WOWWEE made several versions of their boards so this makes troubleshooting difficult.
So, I have been on an effort to rewire, reboard and restore a V2 and have succeeded. The photos show some of the progress to date. Eventually I will finalize the wiring, reinforce the plastic body with fiberglass and of course repaint. When Iím finished it should be a working V 2.

This is a short clip of a rewired, fiberglassed and painted Robosapien V2. It is a Frankenstein using several different salvaged robot parts. But it works great.

I should be such a skilled pilot. Always wanted to try one of those but that blade scares me, one little slip up. Some guy sliced his brain in half.

It was quite an effort to restore this model robot but I was successful.

This is another Robosapien V2 I was able to salvage, restore, paint and fiberglass. Yes, itís another Frankenstein with parts from various ďpartsĒ models. One of the most demanding moves for this robot is to have it lie down and get up again on its own. This maneuver indicates that the robot is functioning both mechanically and electrically with his brain and motor board working properly. There are still parts missing on this robot that I am working on, just painting. When I put it all together it will probably be ready to sell.

This short clip shows the internals of the robot before I put back the ďexoskeletonĒ. You can see how complex this robot is especially for a kids toy. Iím just so impressed with his little bot and glad I can repair a few.
You should be able to pause the video using your default video player, if not try a different player.

The following links show the robot as it is ready to sell. It is a completely functional refurbished Robosapien V2. There are probably very few of these still running unless there was a complete rewire with working boards. Even a brand-new still in the box Robosapien V2 will fail in a short time as the insulation crumbles off the wire creating shorts.

But not this model.
