When I was a kid, I wanted one of these Omnibots badly. I used to go and look at one every Saturday in the store.

Fast forward a few years and I keep buying them on ebay, they are my weekness! So far i have a mint boxed on, one I turned into a desktop PC case and this one.

I resprayed it (they all go yellow after 25 years), made up some new panels from plasticard. Printed some panel designs and laminated them. These are then stuck onto the plasticard for good aesthetics and functioning buttons etc.

This one now autonomously roams around using it's ultrasonic sensors for object avoidance.
