This is our Heathkit HERO 2000 robot, from around 1986-88 (seems some parts were replaced or serviced by Heathkit?).
Update: The battery came in the mail, so I installed it and brought HERO to life! Here's the first video
The arm needs work, one of the wrist cables is broken. I took it out so I could work on it, as well as the torso cable, which was off it's pulley, but is all better now. But he also needs a new battery, I ordered one online. Also the bottom side showing the drive base.
More pictures of the insides....
The insides when I first opened him up.
The power supply and a Colson drive wheel. The angled rails across the back are for the docking charger.
After fixing the torso cable and cleaning him up a bit, and getting ready to open up the computer for the first time in a long time. The warranty sticker (gray top left) is intact! probably from being serviced by the factory.
The computer! I think the boards are from left to right: Memory, Arm Controller, Motor Controller, Floppy Controller, Interface (head), CPU. The processor is an 8088 as used by the old Heath/Zenith 151 series computers, as well as the IBM PC and XT that they are clones of.
