WEIGHT:  About 2 pounds

BRAINS:  MiniRoboMind – A Motorola 68332-based 32-bit processor running at 25 MHz with 512KB RAM and 512KB Flash; Software written in C with GCC; An LCD for taunting competitors; An XBee radio for telemetry and diagnostics

BRAWN: Two Pololu Micro Metal Gear-motors with a TB6612FNG motor driver and 3.25″ R/C aircraft wheels

SKELETON: Expanded PVC, 1/4″

POWER: 8xAA NiMH, with separate fused circuits for the logic and motors; Emergency kill switch (the bane of all robots attempting to conquer the world)

It works.  Electrical and mechanical integration is complete.  The GCC toolchain produces working binaries.  The software reads all of the sensors and controls the motors.
