Do.. Document your Robot!
April 11, 2008
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:
