Let's Make Robots!

Our Respective "Workshops"

Thought it might be cool if we could show off our respective facilities. I think "Robotguy" should go first because that give the rest of us something to work up to!!!

Sometimes I don't find it. Then I just have to use my teeth instead.

The knife switches are power cut off (i dont use fuses). The table is really nice, it tilts for heavy loads, something i picked up in the Transvaal mountains at a yard sale.

Come on BOA,

This is a DIY site...  In fact it seems i'm pretty talented in giving electro-shock, i practice all the time.. 


Here is my ''Virtual Department'' where I design and program all my robots before the construction statment. Right now I'm working more on virtual simulators, modelling robots (cinematic, dynamic and geometric models) and controlling robots using VR interfaces than the construction itself, that's why my electronics and mechanics workbenchs aren't shown yet.  


I can't wait to see you robotise the lawnmover.

I only have an old photo of my workbench, taken before I moved things around quite a bit.  Here's the link:


About a year ago, I got news desks from Ikea and moved the Linux system out of the way of the soldering area.  Photo during the move:


There's another bench in the garage for the grubbier stuff, with a small lathe.



Well, I can't get pics of what will be my mechanical workshop, as it is a few miles from me and I don't feel like going on another bike ride.  However, for now here is my software side (programming, browsing lmr etc)
