The Objective - When your Bot has outgrown your Arduino, it wants to talk, an urge to communicate and Network(Social). A larger brain over the smaller control system is the need. Then a Networked Drove of Bots ! is possible.
Hobby DIY Electronics - Do it Yourself, The World Over.
Use the Arduino for emulating the role of the Spine and an Android System for the Big Networked brain. You can hack an Economy Android Phone to make your Robot an Einstein.
Now for Simulating the Soul, which even the most Advanced Robotic Scientist is unaware of; All you need is Cloud.
How to do that
We have to try create some Robots which are Non-Motor based, Soundless, No Rotary action. Minimum Metal Used, Silicone and Epoxy based parts. They will have 3G and Wi-Fi integrated and the Soul, the Intellect and the Instincts can be upgraded In-system online. The Cloud will be God.
Why the need
The Robot in Literature - Coppélia
Coppélia concerns an inventor, Dr Coppelius, who has made a life-size dancing doll. It is so lifelike that Franz, a village swain, becomes infatuated with it and sets aside his true heart's desire, Swanhilde.
She shows him his folly by dressing as the doll, pretending to make it come to life and ultimately saving him from an untimely end at the hands of the inventor.
The Truth - Swanhilde and her friends find themselves in a large room filled with people. However, the occupants aren't moving. The girls discover that, rather than people, these are life-size mechanical dolls. They quickly wind them up and watch them move. Swanhilde also finds Coppélia behind a curtain and discovers that she, too, is a doll.
The sad part of this Opera and The Nutcracker is that Inventors of Bots are shown as Evil Scientists. We have to clear the stigma by making a Giant King Kong Bot.
