I was asked to re-make Micro:Bob for an upcoming conference (the original travels the world with the Micro:bit World Tour, and its exact location is at the moment unknown). Inspired by #TyroBot I decided to make a robot that has a more robot-ey shape -- looks like the ones in the old TV programs, or comic books.

The electronics and software didn't change so far (OK, I added LEDs for the eyes), it's mostly about the looks.

I also took photos as I went this time, so you can see the whole build process, and maybe have some insight in how I make the design decisions as I go.
