DIY Mod an Omnibot 80’s Robot with Voice, Camera, Servos, Bluetooth

*Check back for more updates on this build :) So, have you heard of the Omnibot? Well! Any kid from the 80's will remember how amazing this robot was. For you young kids, this robot was released in the early 80's by Tomy. The robot was "programmable", in the sense that the actions were recorded to a casette tape. As you operated the robot over its remote control, the casette would record tones for each acti ...
