Let's Make Robots!

Now that was FAAAST!

Hey there guys,

A week earlier, our fantastic LMR member Lumi was kind enough to sponsor me a gripper arm and a pan tilt bracket (for 3DOF). I was planning to use it in a project for a local exhibition. More on that soon! Let's see how the shipping went.

The goods were shipped on the 6th of March ( Thursday ). I so badly needed it on Friday, or else, I had to wait a whole Saturday to receive it only by Sunday morning. The wait was dramatic. At times, I felt that it wouldn't make it on time for the event. But thanks to some speedup from DHL, I received the goods on Friday, just in time for the event.

Check out the shipping story:

.Used the gripper arm in the event. It worked really nice. Will  soon post on how the event went, and of course, also a review of the gripper arm and pan-tilt kits.

Thanks a lot Lumi. And thanks a lot LMR.

Well, that's really a fast shipping. What did you do to get it that fast out of the DHL station?

I don't know Lumi. I just phoned like 20 times to the DHL station.

Next thing you know, a notification for delivery pops up!
