Let's Make Robots!

Do.. Document your Robot!

It is about a year ago I made a robot called "Skiwalker".

It's parts are used for other robots, and I would have forgotten all about it, if not every now and then when I logged in, someone wrote to me; "Hey, that is a nice walkthrough, cool, helped me, inspired me" etc..

That is so NICE! It often makes my day, to get that kind of feedback without warning for a long forgotten thing I did.

And all I did at the time was to remember to film / take pictures.

  • Taking pictures of your robot, while in progress, when it is fun - and entering them on a website for other builders to comment.. is like having money in the bank; You have both the money, and get interest, over and again.

Not documenting what you do is like spending money while you are drunk; Fun at the time it happens, but no real value to your life later on.


 

I just realized the above when I found these blurred tests of a no longer living robot.. It was fun at the time, but I should have documented it.. now it is just gone..

Well - at least these where in my phone:

Cool dravings etc!  Nice!

Hey, nice post, that’s so truth, sometimes we made really cool stuff, but we forget to document. Happens with me all the time, that’s why I started my website too, to share my projects. Also I like here, because is another way to show my inventions and get reviews from this community. So I guess we all lose so many good projects that are just in our memories.

 

…In memory of ‘’Skiwalker’’ and the other robots that were never show to the world.
