Cin-D LOU will be an autonomous robot (at 5'-2" tall) able to self navigate around the HIVE space with some initial (and ever growing) ability for interaction.  This project is our version of a home-built C3PO-like protocol droid.  It is to be decided whether it will be overtly male/female or androgynous in form.  One possible source of inspiration is this art-piece seen at the 2011 Detroit Maker faire at http://wiki.hive13.org/Detroit_Droids.  A different inspiration is here http://wiki.hive13.org/AnotherBot.

The project team is an informal group of like-minded folks.  We hold a weekly team meeting on Tuesdays, before/after the regular business meeting and make progress each week.  Individuals and small groups can take on specific tasks and interested bystanders can follow the progress and contribute as things evolve.
