Let's Make Robots!

Dad and Kids embark on robot making

Hi.  We've been lurking for a while, and doing a lot of reading and studying, and we are about to embark on a real robot project.  We've been figuring out basic electronics, and just now starting to build some circuits that might help us understand better what is going on when we build a robot.  Of course, we want to have fun and build a cool robot, but we also want to understand why it is doing what it is doing!

my 9-month old is rather more interested in eating  the resistors.. in time...

I'm pretty sure that eating resistors is a bad idea.  ;-)  But I bet he or she would like to watch some flashing LEDs.

Thanks everyone.  We're excited about our new project.

Good luck, from another dad who enjoys sharing robot projects with his kids.

Have fun. There are many dads in this community. Some of them in disguise. They will come out of the woods eventually!
