well i would still like to get me a used animated santa claus the singing 5 foot tall type and plug hal into it like some had said before but finding a cheap one is hard to do (i know it wouldn't be robotic with arms , but it would work with a moving body and animated head and i have a body skin for it ![:)]

I saw the Santa Clause but bought another manikin from the same compsny. It was a dancing/singing skelleton. The mouth move when connected to Hal but there are no body movements and I assume that Santa would be the same.
I think the company that makes them is called 'Gemmy' or something like that. A search of old Hal files for Santa shoud bring up the real name.

LS
I have checked with them over the years and found that they are sometimes very seasonal. What I mean by that is within a couple of months of Halloween they might bring back some monsters and even Santa at that time, at least this is how the acted in the past.

I think I paid $100 or mine but if I remember correctly I believe that most sold for less than $200 and that may be a bit high. All in all I thought most were very affordable.

another interesting link talking about robots with human capable acting software (a.i.etc.)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l30kVIcKXfE&feature=related
the reason i am posting these is that i know that robotics and a.i. software programing will be used hand in hand eventually on a mass scale with certain robots and androids ( although some robots will depend on just straight forward programing . ) [:)]

Yes they are still stealing jobs, wonder how many jobs have gone to machines already, must be thousands if not millions.  Oh well time to think up new jobs, perhaps robot maintenance ?!

Good find [:)]
