Let's Make Robots!

Did you donate already? UPDATED


Hi all, sorry for the site not having a clear communication. This is what happens when everyone helps, and time passes - we get old links no longer working, and misleading information..

It's impossible to keep updating who runs what to everyone all the time - many people are helping, new mails are written every day, things change..

One thing has been, and is the same through all times, till present (October 2014): When bills have to be paid, and there's not made enough money by various deals and donations, it's the founder / Webmaster who pays the bills.

Any help is always very much appreciated, and Paypal is the easiest way:


Let us know if you have donated to support LMR. Or why you won't.

As we all know LMR is founded and financed by a few volunteers. It is their basic work that gives us the ability to share our passion. Since our number has significally grown and the demand on bandwith and computational power has grown too it is time for us to give back something on top of fame and honour for the founders and drivers of LMR to keep this idea going, to enable new inventions and whatever is needed to present our together-made robot projects to the outside world.

Your small donation makes the big difference. So go ahead and individually do something good for all of us. 

Keep in mind that LMR goes on and on so you can donate once, twice, weekly, monthly or yearly. Its good to know that LMR has some research & development budget to drive innovation.

And here you find the new Donation page.

Pay Pal told me I could not use my Debit Master Card. I know the money is in the account and that the card works as I used it recently. I'll try again tomorrow.


Sure did. This place is where a lot of us got started...and I may be guilty of stealing other peoples circuits once in a while =)

not yet, i'm just plane flat broke atm.

Yes, it only seems right.

A quesion: The progress graph (which I no  longer see) seemed to show that we were at ~10% with $300. Am I correct to guess that we are gunning for around $3000 for LMR v4?

Regarding the progress bar: I was thinking about how to show what was going on, what hours was tracked already etc. We have been working for years with no money coming in, a lot of people mail around, and we have never met each other etc etc..There is no main office, no master plan.

So only 2 things are solid:

A) LMR lives, we are working on development for you, and it's not free (as in free ber) to do for us.

B) We are really happy to get some help.

There's a couple of drawings on how things with donation should work (made by me), but I will not ask Hugo to spend time on things that will not work out easily on that project. So for now, I am throwing up stuff as I can, manually updating.. and Hugo tells me that he is fixing something.. and then I take something down, and up, and.... - it's the fabric LMR is made from :)

Indeed. The progress bar seemed like a very arbitrary way to measure things. I don't know what's happening behind the curtain, to be sure, but I imagined it more like how you described. Thanks for the time and info. Carry on :)

My estimate is different. I grabbed an image of the progress bar, and measured it in a graphics package. 

Total length was 2 3/4 inches. Progress was 7/32 inches. 

That was from when the progess so far was $300. Some math showed me that the total value of the original progress bar was $3,771.43.

However, I noted that the bar was measuring against 'hours spent', and I believe more hours are still being spent. So I have no idea what the complete goal for the project is, but I expect something more than $3,771.43.

I suspect Frits probably took down the bar so he could work on getting something a bit better at communicating the status.

In the meantime, I hope LMRians who have a few dollars to spare will continue to provide some support. ; j

It seems the only way I can donate is to create a paypal account. I do not want a paypal account. Just one more way for my identity to be stolen.

Send me account details and I will deposit money directly into that account.
