Thanks guys... I plugged arduino and the community as much as I could in the making of videos...
Hopefully the editors leave some of my stuff in the final cut.
Thanks to any one that ever replied to one of my Newby questions... Couldn't have learned it without you!!!!

Think the robot would be great in some TED talk about what one can do with Arduino...
