This isn't a new robot but rather a remix of an old idea I had. It's based off of a robot that I built for a 555 timer design contest I entered years ago, I called it the Freedom555bot. Fridgebot is a terrible name so I'm open to suggestions. I just named it that because I do most of my testing on the door of my fridge, lol. I've always liked the idea of a small robot that could cling to metal surfaces and I had it in mind when we were designing the IoTiny.

Voltron Robot

Hey guys, sorry it's been so long since I posted a project....too long.

In the end I'd like to have Optimus carry the EZ-B like a back pack with an Arduino sound shield of some sort quoting Prime sayings every now and again. I also need to fit a LiPo battery in somewhere and I'll try to cover most of it up with some Gundam model parts that I received. Here's some early photos:
