Notes:

I have built some small robots in the past. Have been absent from robot building for a while now, but now that my daughter is older I have more time to learn and build robots (which my daughter also seems to like.) I am interested in hardware and software and I am currently working as a firmware programmer for a battery charger and analyzer manufacturer. Recently dug out my old David Heiserman robot books. I picked up Myke Predko's Programming Robot Controllers book and quite enjoyed it. I am particularly interested in learning more about applying an RTOS to a more complex robot system.

Well, I broke down and bought one of those Robosapiens for Christmas. I even picked up one of the mini robosapiens for my two year old daughter as well. She keeps saying that Santa is going to be bringing each of us a white robot (must be the continuing print ads from Toys R US and Sears.) The cat better watch out. I warned him ;)

Continuing to set up my workspace and organize all my parts and books. I managed to build up a quick proof of concept platform from lego. I wanted to test the Androbot/TOPO/B.O.B. 2 wheel slant configuration. Works great and has pretty good stability. The next step is build up a small prototype with servos. I also want to mount 2 additional servos for dual arm control with spring controlled grippers. The task being to see if I can build a fairly functional small robot with only 4 motors. Haven't decided what specific sensors will be added and what its application suite would be.
