Newbie - Pleased To Meet You!
May 8, 2009
Hello all. I am so glad that this site exists, and I'm so happy that I found it!
As soon as the wife and I sell our house and move into our new one, I'm going to be building a drum machine robot. One of my good friends linked me to the Yellow Drum Machine robot this morning, and now I am hooked. This robot hits home to me a little bit because I used to be a drummer in a moderately successful rock band. The same friend that let me see the Yellow Drum Machine has built his own R2-D2, see http://www.chrislee.tv/robotics/r2blog.html
I'm not claiming to know much about robotics, but I have always been a science/numbers guy, and I've built many computer systems. Technological singularity is one of my favorite subjects of research. To get right down to it, I'm really excited about delving into this site and really getting a grasp on things.
It will be a month or so before I get started on my first robot, but I wanted to introduce myself in hopes that I can meet some new friends on here that will help me through my building experiences. I hope to be an integral part of this community.
So, I hope I can count on some of you to help me through a steep learning curve. If you think I should start with something smaller, please let me know.
