Jason "Maxhirez" Hoffman
I wrote my first code and built my first robots when I was about twelve, but expense and difficulty in getting parts soon interfered with the hobby enough to put it on hiatus. Fast forward nearly 25 years and the Internet, open source movement and income have made it possible to do the things I always dreamed of as a teenager. My primary interest is in simple machines that can do useful tasks. The Roomba is to my mind the best example of the kind of things I want to make. But cool robots-like the Topo, Comro Tot, Hero and of course the RB5X are important to me too!
