    Now that you have finished the power loader, what if you made a robot with its own moving head, similar to stuff found in Real Steal, Pacific Rim, Chappie, and Terminator, just to name a few. I’m not saying that you make the whole robot, although you could, but just see if you can make the head and integrate your J.A.R.V.I.S. Program.
