Let's Make Robots!

Hackerspace and other things

I have been away for a while again :(.  But right now I am sitting at my desk sick as a dog.  I felt I should take this time to update my LMR.  I haven't been able to post my current projects on this site because of this.  Saskatoon TechWorks, a new hackerspace community that has been established.  This means that I will be able to share my knowledge and tools with other like minded individuals.  As an added bonus, I get to use awesome tools as well.

Sumo wheels

Ugh I really have been bad for keeping my stuff up to date but here is something new.

Fingertech Robotics liked my wheels they decided to make some of thier own :D.  This makes it easier for me to and everyone else to build a competitive sumo. 

Back from hiatus

Hello all,

I have returned back from my robot building hiatus.  I've been saving up my money to buy these two things:

Now that I am sufficiently poor, it is back to robots :D.

I have two new ideas and a derivative I am working on.  Ta ta for now

WCRG 2011

The Western Canadian Robot Games just happened last month.  I wasn't able to go but sent my teams robots to run for the mini sumo competition.  We came out second again this year.  Hopefully I can actually attend in person next year.  I am working on some new robots and hope to have them up here soon.  The sumos are currently in Ottawa now for their regional competition.  Enjoy the video :)

Robogames Photos

I have uploaded all my photos to my facebook page.  They should be available for everyone to view.  There are just too many to add manually on this site.  If you have troubles viewing them let me know.
