    A PLC would be a pretty blunt instrument for robot design.

    What kind of results did you get when you did your web search on "PLC" and
    "robot"?

  3. Don't you know that a robot is a man-like machine made of steel. It has
    a square head and lightbulbs instead of the eyes. All the OP needs is
    to flash those lightbulbs; a PLC will work perfectly for that.

    Sometimes, they use aluminum, or even <*gasp*> plastic. ;-)

    The only PLC I've ever seen was bigger than most whole robots I've
    seen - do they have little miniature ones nowadays, or is OP making
    a MONGO robot?

    Cheers!

  7. Do you imply robots can be woman-like? That's interesting :)

    I know if you go to the www.automationdirect.com website they have a
    tutorial on PLC programming and interfacing. That might be a good
    start for you.

    Plus, (and they don't pay me to say this), I have found they have some
    really good pricing on their DL-05 and DL-06 series. Though, I've
    only a handful of projects I actually used them on.
    Good luck. -mpm

    Huh?

    Can you say, "non-sequitur"? WTF are you talking about?

    FWIW, I firmly believe that no machine could ever be like a living
    being - they don't feel.

    Cheers!

    While that may be true..., it's inverse is not.
    Try calling customer service at any major company and see if you don't
    agree.

    Perhaps he is implying something about the females of his acquaintance and
    their use of Plastic (Credit Cards).

    That's a good point. While no machine can ever feel, humans do have
    the capacity to deny their feelings to the point of becoming a machine-
    substitute.

    And there is no apostrophe in the possessive its.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    Well, OK, but it's kind of a strech - who'd want to build a robot out
    of credit cards? ;-)

    Or silicone falsies? ;-)

    Cheers!

    I type at near 90 wpm so the occasional typo is to be expected.
    But since you brought it up, the American Heritage Dictionary states:

    It is frequently asserted that sentences beginning with and or but
    express "incomplete thoughts" and are therefore incorrect.
