Let's Make Robots!

Our first 'robot' circuit: What is this Component?

We've been working on a lot of basic circuits, just trying to understand basic electronics.  Almost all of our components are salvaged from old electronics, so it has been slow going, but we are learning a lot!

Dad and Kids embark on robot making

Hi.  We've been lurking for a while, and doing a lot of reading and studying, and we are about to embark on a real robot project.  We've been figuring out basic electronics, and just now starting to build some circuits that might help us understand better what is going on when we build a robot.  Of course, we want to have fun and build a cool robot, but we also want to understand why it is doing what it is doing!
