Hi Guys,

When rummaging in the attic I found my old Omnibot with the remote and the original battery pack Smile The battery is dead but I popped in two double A's and the digital clock still works. I was too young to really understand what I had was more than just a toy (I was 5 when I got it).

Anyway, I want to work on a project with my daughter. She's 7 but she's taken a real liking to electronics after I got her a snap electronics kit. Can anyone suggest a good project and what basic hardware I should purchases (servos, sensors, etc.) to get started.

Thanks,
Ali
