General Info

 Andy's long cord could plug into joystick port 2 of an Atari 800, 800XL, or 600XL with 48K expansion (or a Commodore 64, for that matter). Direct joystick control is available via port 1. But most programmers will probably be more interested in getting Andy's responses to a series of instructions in BASIC.
The included disk software also includes a "Personality Editor" that lets the non-programmers in the family set up robotic behavior patterns by using English, Logo-like, or BASIC-like commands plus menu options.
Andy has feedback sensors for light, sound and touch. The robot can wheel its way through mazes, roll through a complex programmed route, automatically back off from immovable obstacles it touches head-on. It makes sounds as it maneuvers at two speeds on all floor surfaces.
Andy admittedly can't do much that's immediately useful. Andy is being marketed as the first home introduction to current robotics technology. The theme is, "Andy can't bring you breakfast in bed, but he will give you food for thought."
