First Robot Project Choice?
I've been reading up on robots and am very anxious to begin my first project, but I need advice. You see, the "start here" robot does look pretty cool to me, but I've found that the "Yellow Drum Machine" (http://letsmakerobots.com/node/112) is far more appealing. So my question is this: Would it be unwise to build the "Yellow Drum Machine" as my first robot?
I have decent experience in programming from my C++ class in college, so the programming should be somewhat easier for me to grasp. However, my experience with assembling electronics is minimal (I made a cute little light bulb thingy in like 5th grade...But that's all)
