I figured that since the robot was to be an appliance type, the service and
technical information must have been a very closed affair. That and the fact
that it was not very popular (couple thousands made ?) would render the inof
even harder to find.
I will be opening it as soon as I free up enough space to work on it
One of the first things I would like to do with it, is to restore it to it's
original condition.
 Then I would like to perform some non-destructive upgrades on it. Open to
suggestions for now.
At this point, in order to restore it, I need to find out what was inside to
start with.
