Master Robot Builder David Calkins reveals the basics of putting together and programming your very own android. Plus find out what happens when we combine Patrick and non-dairy creamer.

You may remember David Calkins, RoboGames organizer and instructor at SFSU, from Systm Episode 40. The episode where David walked and talked us through the steps of building a Combat Robot. In this episode David takes us through the process of putting a pint sized android, more properly known as a humanoid robot, together and programming it to do Patrick's unholy bidding.
