I have been pretty interested in robotics for my whole life. However, it wasn't until I graduated college a few years ago that I was able to indulge my curiosity.
I started in robotics by building a lot of kits and then modifying them. I've built quite a few BEAM robots and a couple of 'bots using the BASIC Stamp.
I only discovered robots.net a few months ago and I decided that it's finally time to make an account. It's been hard to network with other roboticists since I live in a pretty remote area but I am hoping that robitics.net will help out with that. I have also been giving presentations on robot building at my university in hopes of getting others excited about robotics.
My current project is to build a self-recharging, BS2-based robot. I also recently built a sumo-bot and I am hoping to get others at the university to compete with me. Information and a web site will be up soon...
