Possible Shield Requirements Analysis

RE: Possible Shield Requirements Analysis
2 chips is crazy, but one thing came to mind when you mention was some sort of intelligent "sleep mode" where the whole "system" isn't powered up some sensors are always on and if the right circumstances arise can interrupt the chip that is asleep to wake and control movement etc etc.

This kinda solves one of my issues with these types of creatures where they seem very superficial, they are either off or on. Having that blur a bit will make them feel more "alive".

If we did not go the shield route the PCB would probably be a little cheaper, you could go off a 10x5cm base instead of 10x10cm that the shield would require (Arduino shields are a little wider than 5cm thus requiring the move to 10cm width) Obviously then you need to design an entire power system....which will add to dev time. My one good power system is all Lipo based and I don't think its going to work here.
