All your Elvis are belong to us!

Another Plurimedia Bot from the R&D division of Mental-Escher.Net- Robotic announcer based on a Wowwee Elvis Chassis (sans jacket and hair) and hacked using a Serializer parasite board and some coding to produce a talking head that can speak text (using SAPI TTS) or audio (wave or mp3) files for input.  Mouth servo moves based on viseme (for TTS) or speak frequency audio stream amplitude (for audio files) to provide realistic (sic) mouth movement-speech synchronation.

In autonomous mode, the bot reads from an RRS feed and occasionally blurts out incoherent robo babble.  Bot retains the original "Alive" mode which brings the bot to "life", while the robots speech has been completely hijacked using a servo and the parasite board!
