Yep been there I found a bunch of sites but they do not offer any more than
the basic item description.
I guess I need all kind of information; it says "no user serviceable parts
inside" on the skin so I guess a hardware or service manual may be too much
to ask but I would like to find some info as to what it was capable of as
new in term of cpu power, interfacing capabilities etc...
The unit I got has apparently been stripped from it's guts (or most of them)
it still has the speech synthesis module since I heard it on friday eve. But
I didn't get the bateries so I can't try it out. (my 3 year old son is
asking :"when can we plug it in?":( )
The unit also has a (secial?) plate in "ooks like gold to me"(TM) on the
front with Nolan Bushnell's signature engraved and the Androbot logo/name
and what looks a like a series number (18)

Any ways I was hoppping for some technical insight. what kind of controller
are used for it, any cool application, any personal experience.
