Robot Restoration

     In 1982 the Heathkit Hero was one of the finest robots money could buy. My Hero has had a rough time of it since then and the years have not been kind to him.

     However I'm planning to breath some new life into him. The original circuit boards are all either non-functional or too obsolete to restore, but the original chassis and motors are in pretty good shape. I'm giving this old robot a new Raspberry Pi brain, some updated motor controlers, and any sensors I can add and figure out how to use.
