The Biotronics Project was conceptualized with a simple basic objective: to design a self conscious robot. The robots, just like other living animals, can see, smell, taste, hear, feel, think, balance itself, fly, swim, breed, build and die too. These robots are collectively called Biotronics. Bio means being alive and tronics means intelligent electronics. These synthetic organisms are sometimes called the Silver Species.
Biotronics were invented and developed by the author to study the nature of consciousness. With Arduino as the platform and the prototype above as the experimental model, the concepts of being alive and being with life can now be properly differentiated and described. In addition, as a starter, consciousness can now be classified as (i) self-animated by mechanical design, (2) self-animated by computer programming, and (3) self-animated by a network of wise sensors.
All other classifications of consciousness can be found in my YouTube videos.
