Christmas has come early

Posted on 13 November 2006 in Robotics

I read Make 6 last week -- a bit late, I know -- and fell immediately in love with the idea of BEAM robotics, simple robots that can be build at home with simple tools, but display complex behaviour. Last Wednesday I placed an order with Solarbotics for the components I needed to build the "Trimet" robot described in the magazine, and today it was delivered -- not at all bad for something that was shipped from Canada!

Given that my Dremel tool was delivered today as well -- oddly enough, (a supermarket) had the best UK price I could easily find -- it's all I can do to hold myself back from building a robot or two this evening... but I'll be strong, and will finish the NSLU2 project first.
