My Animatronic computer Mod will anwser this question.
What is megatasking?
Performance is not just a question of running one application at jaw-dropping speed. It is about a computing experience that lets you run multiple processor intensive and multithreaded applications responsively at top speed. Megatasking is that experience.
It is about a computing experience that lets you run multiple processor intensive and multithreaded applications responsively at top speed.
With the right software, Megatasking is about playing the latest life-like game while instant messaging, creating, editing or enjoying your favorite digital media.
We expect that Megatasking is the future reality of PC performance. Explore the possibilities.
Hope you Like it.
THIS IS AWESOME!!! Dude! You're sick (in a good way, which I would enjoy be ) I can't explain what I feel while watching those videos. I do just know one thing, your project has to less responses compared with the number of visits! And also the rating, wtf only 4 starts.. Man dude.. I'll give you 5 stars now, hope people will comment this one, because it's not just a normal computer, here we have something new and exciting.

Claas M - I think the idea is that these are instructional videos to give others instructions for completing this type of modeling project.
It not just video of him working and I expect that it's more in depth than the YouTube videos that he has shared with the forum.
is anybody (or even the thread-starter) reading the comments in this thread?
Well , The animatronic mod took me over 2 years to make.And its 2 projects in 1.I
filmed the entire process of making the animatronic. I shot 93 hours of DV tapes
.My 1st PC MONSTERMOD was just a sculpture. I wanted my this Mod to move and talk
,Maybe to tell me that I have email.... Picture people's PCs having Heads .
There favorite movie star or rock star maybe a animal. Maybe like Hal from 2001
Space Odyssey .But, My animatronic Mod Has no A.I. But maybe one day. Im programming
the 16 servo movements into the PC and press the play to play the movements a lip
The problems was mainly the cost . Wanted to upgrade my animatronic 's computer
but couldnt . I wish I would have spend more money on my servos .There was times
that I look at cost than torque. Which cost me more money in the long run .Also
the oven ,I had to build an oven to bake the foam rubber, My 2nd oven 3'x 3'x
3 'plywood box with foil insulation with a single burner and PC case fan for
air circulation . And I baked the foam for 11 hours. But the 1st oven was to small
2x'2x'2' box ,The mold fit in this oven .But there was no air circulation
and foam rubber skin failed .You need the air circulation to bake foam rubber.
I just wanted to say Thank You to all on this forum,And Thank You bit-tech.net
for allowing me to post here.
Its older components except for the case . Im a Big MSI + AMD Fan.
I dont need alot of computer power to run the animatronic. The computer just send
the commands to the 16 servos.
The case is LIAN LI PC-V800B
My motherboard MSI KT6 and
AMD 2500XP Barton
Video card XFX 5600
Antec TrueBlue 480 Watt PSU
Maxtor 40 HD
When uncovered ,Here is 32 feet of servo cable.
The only thing connecting to the PC and the Animatronic is a modular cable (Looks
like a phone cable).
Which is plug into a modular adapter that plug into the PC's serial port .
The end of the modular cable plug in Mini SSCII Serial Servo Controller.
Thank You Guys
I will be in MaximumPC Magazine OCTOBER 2007 "Mod of the month"
