Yes! Finally, someone to whom you can make a robot for Christmas, someone who will love to get it.
Yes! Finally, someone who will give you a homemade robot for Christmas.
Yes! Finally you can get to actually see and try someone else's robot .. and keep it.
This is how I would like to start a page on LMR; A whole (little) section with one purpose:
Let's make robots to each other for Christmas!
Sounds mad? Personally I would love to participate, would you?
My only rule would be that this should NOT get out of hands in rules and suspicion, there is a risk of someone not being a good sport, of course, but no pain, no gain.. and we keep quite a good tone of friendliness in here, I think, no?
OK.. Enough boring, the idea:
At first of October everyone who want to participate should start building a robot that they mark "Christmas-robot" (we will make a special check mark), and show progress online.. so that everyone can see what robots are being build for Christmas.
At November 30, everyone should send a mail to an e-mail address we make for the purpose.
At first of December we show a screen dump of all incoming mails, and first on the list should send he's Christmas-robot to next on the list (last sends to the top).
This way you will get a homemade robot, possibly from a friend from the other side of the globe.. for Christmas!
Am I the only one who would want to participate?
