Let's Make Robots!

Realising a Dream

I just ordered all the parts for my very first robot.  I don't remember the last time I have been so excited.  Ever since I was a kid I've always dreamed about building and owning a robot but I never thought it would be something that I would be able to do.  I believed that it was just a dream and my life was shaped accordingly.  That is until I discovered instructables.com  about a year or two ago and saw that other people like me where building robots on their own.  You don't have to work for Honda or go to MIT to build a robot!  I have done a lot of research over the last year and a half and eventually stumbled upon this site.  I love the starter project on here and decided that it will be my very first robot.  When these parts parts arrive and I start building I will be living a dream I have had my entire life (I'm 28 now) how cool is that!  Does anyone else feel the same way?  Do you realise how fantastic this is?  I know that my first robot will not have quite the abilities that the creation of my childhood dreams had but what doors have I opened here?  I am truely excited for the future.

I've been doing electronics/programming/robotics for quite some time now, and I still get that kind of feeling when starting a new project =D
