What better way to celebrate the end of your degree than by building a robot that begs for money? Perhaps that will even help with some of the student loans? A few friends and I got together and made this animation version of Tiny Tim from Futurama. The robot moved, played an audio track and flashed it's teeth. Actions were triggered using PIR and ultrasound sensors. This was a beer and Value Village fueled build over a weekend!
