hi. i have decided that since i got a Quadra 605 macintosh for $10 with everything from a guy who had too many computers on saturday, may 29th, that i would make a mannquien standup macintosh person. any ideas about what type of mannquien to use - i was planning on using the ones that they use in stores, if i can get them with heads, arms, and legs. it would be a neat idea as when i install the speechtalk functions on my computer, and use simpletext, i could make it appear that it was talking. thank you very much.

huh?

Do you mean you ar going to gut the Quadra and place the components inside of a mannequin? - thus giving the appearance of a mannequin, but one that will listen and talk via Plaintalk?

I'm going to keep the Qu

I'm going to keep the Quadra inside its case and it inside of a mannequin thus giving the appearance of a mannequin, but one that will talk via Plaintalk. I don't know how to make it listen. It would have to be female, as that's the only voice i have.

i would strip the case off ... you can be more creative/flexible with the positioning insite the "body" then Wink

Do Apples Dream of Electric Trees?

If it's a female maniquin, make it look like the android Rachel Rosen from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.

nah...
i plan on making it look like hayley mills probably from the movie 'the chalk garden' made in 1964, or as the daughter of tres in the movie Gundam Wing - Endless Waltz (watched that this morning).

also, any ideas where to get plans to make your own mannequin?
