Complete noob wants to build robot
March 28, 2009
My plan is, somewhere in the future, to build a robot that can fold a piece of paper and put it in an envelope. I have never touched robots, but consider myself a skilled programmer, so that part shouldn't be too hard. Does anyone have advice on where to start? What books is good for learning to make this kind of robots (or isn't it called mechatronics)? Is my idea too complex for a beginner (with no experience in hardware except plugging in wires on hdd's and pci-cards in motherboards)?
If you could recommend any good danish books on this topic it would be just terrific :)
