Sorry for the absence, I’ve been busy (lame excuse, sorry. The actual excuse is that I’m tired of uploading my pictures for this blog because it’s annoying and blog entries without pictures suck).
This, however, is too important. I’ve been building a robot for a class this month and it’s now alive and moving! We cut him from acrylic, slapped three motors and some omniwheels on him, and gave him a battery + eeePc. He’s just now learning to drive and move (which is exciting!) but even more exciting is the fact that we trained him to tweet whatever he’s doing. So, if you’d like, you can follow our robot as he becomes sentient and grows up into a red-ball-nomming beasty.
Definitely be tuned in to the feed on Jan 29th for the final competition, he’ll tell you what he’s doing the entire time!
