Thanks for the wonderful feedback everyone. It's very encouraging.  :)

Yes, it's the New York Hall of Science, which is here: http://www.nysci.org/

We are tentatively planning on installing the new robot sometime in June to do some initial testing. I don't have a date yet for the official launch. When it goes on line in the museum, I'll post it here so everyone knows. By the way, the NYSCI is also the location of the New York MakerFaire in the fall.

Wow! Another amazing build! I'm never disappointed to see your work, though I am a bit jealous, mainly at the fact that I don't have the knowledge, time, experience, skills, tools, etc - to even try to attempt what you do! I'm lucky if I can get the JB Weld to stick, or drill a straight hole in some aluminium to bodge together some craptastic mechanism. That is, when I have the motivation to actually work on something (why must I have bills, and why must the time in a day be so damn finite?).

I'll never tire of seeing your work though, if only for inspiration at what is possible!

BTW - do you get people knocking at your door to do movie props or other such things? I mean, do you monetize any of your work, because it seems like if you don't/aren't - you're missing out on an insane opportunity! Heck, even if you just came up with part designs and sold them to CNC enthusiasts (or had them manufactured for other robotic hobbyists) - you could make some money off those insane skills!
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

Beautiful craftsmanship there rb451. It must be great to share this type of work with your amazingly talented daughters... makes me regret not having children of my own  XD  And to think that I only came to this section of the forum to post a photo of my inconsequential little eight LED test array. Oh well back to the drawing board and thanks so much for sharing this with us mere mortals.

Nice work and thank you for sharing!  Your work inspired my kids to build something similar. However, time and budget was a constraint so we had to scale down.  Here is the preliminary result:
