Robotics

I went through a “robot building phase” I guess you could say. Somewhere around 2012 the robot bug bit me again. I had built, or tried to build, little robots way back in the 1990’s but really didn’t have the skill or knowledge or something to really make it happen.

Around 2012 I found an online robot site that re-peaked my interest in building bots and I went fast and furious for two to three years building robot after robot. Most of these were based on the Arduino platform and were fun to build and share with others in the robot forum.

During that time period I built twenty five or more robots. Many were similar but many were different or experiments in learning how this all worked. Most of the completed bots are listed in the menu here or linked below. Some still work, some have been “disassembled” and others never really were finished…but that could still happen some day, no telling.
