Let's Make Robots!

I have a 50% off code for a DF- Rover

Well everyone in the Microcontroller contest at instructables recieved a 50% off code for this robot http://www.robotshop.com/dfrobotshop-rover-tracked-robot-basic-kit.html

I am not going to use mine. 50% off means you still have to pay $45 for it. I will give this code away to some one who will actually spend the $45 to buy the robot. I do not want to give it to someone else who will not use it.

Vote for LMR users over at instructables contest

I entered my "pong" project into the instructables LED contest. If you are a member of instructables and like my project then you can vote for my project here http://www.instructables.com/contest/led2011/?show=ENTRIES&sort=RECENT&limit=18&offset=36 There is no direct link for the voting so you will have to find my project on that page.

Jad Berro also entered his project named "My Vario" which currently is the first one on this page http://www.instructables.com/contest/led2011/?show=ENTRIES&sort=RECENT&limit=18&offset=108

I have started 3 new projects. I mainly wanted to use the laser cutter at school before the school year was over. So I made these things which I will be fully constructing in the upcoming weeks. I just threw stuff together for some photos.
