I'm currently working on a fully functional replica of the humorous sphere Wheatley from the PORTAL series. It is going to be controlled via smartphone or a dedicated controlling unit I'm also designing.

Wheatley's actions are going to be replicated nearly to the fullest including proper movemement of the eye while indepentent movement of the inner pupil. Opening and closing of his eye lids, moving his handle bars up and down and of course speak ;)
Plans are to include little AI and moving on a dedicated railing system. We will see how it goes!

You can check out my worklog either on my FB-page or the The Replica and Props forum:
