Homemade VS ready made?
February 27, 2009
I'm very new to the world of robotics. I found this site after doing a google search for robots and thought, "wow this site is dope". After reading lots of post and what not on here I decided I wanted more. So I go down to the not so local hobby shop and find that they sell "Robot" magazine. I was pumped! Till I got home and read it. I was hoping it was some what like lmr with the homemade droids and fixes for said such projects. I was way wrong. Most of the articles were about what i call ready made kit. I personally like the homemade type better. To me is way more fun to step back and say wow I just turned a hand full old computer parts and micro-controller into a droid. But that's just me. I want to know what others find more enjoyable making your own robot from bits and ends or putting together a kit bot.
