Progress in the project...

Progress in the project:

I have already mounted the two servos in a head propotype together with the camera and a couple of touch sensors:

Also mounted the prototype on a scale of the body with some sensors:

Problems wih LMR site

Over the last several months I have noticed the LMR site is extemely slow when inputting text. Often times I will be 2-3 words ahead of what appears on the screen and when I look back over what I have typed, letters and somtimes complete words are missing. On occasion the screen stops updating completely and I have to backspace several times and try it again. This not only makes it very frustrating to post anything, but when I do manage to get it to work, it still ends up with missing letters.

Recommendation Engine

I have been laid up this winter and have been working from home the past several months.  Idle hands ARE the devil's work so I decided to take on a machine learning challenge at CodeProject.com and build a recommendation engine like Amazon, Facebook etc.  These are interesting pieces of software that in commercial sites can work in conjunction with search engines to lead customers to content, products or items they might never would have looked at otherwise.  In fact, this is something that might be useful on LMR - maybe have a recommendations window for when a user logs in?&
