IHMC in Pensacola

Visiting Pensacola - wish this place had regular tours... This is a video of their open house from this year's National Robotic's Week. Their website is here.

This video is where I first heard of them.

Atari Punk Console

Found this video online, though not strictly robotic, I think that me and my son need to make one of these...

Like Father - Like Son

When I posted about getting the Activity Bot (see post below) on the Parallax Forums, my pal erco commented,

Whit: God bless you, your continued fine work, and the new addition to your family! 

I replied, 

@ erco - the little fellow looks just like me...

and attached this photo!

On It's Way...

Just ordered a Parallax Activity Bot. I haven't had anything new to play with in a while and this will be really fun.
