Yes, I am a curious hacker that simply loves building things. I have played around with some robotics stuff in the past but was never able to really sink my teeth into anything. For whatever reason I could not find the right mix of fun and educational.
Enter the Arduino! What an awesome little device. Within a few days, I had a robot built, had sensors linked into web pages and was already ordering plenty of other add-on bits to see what I could do with this thing..
First project was a simple robot using the chassis of an old RC car. I found plenty of information on the web on how to remove the RX-2 chip to replace it with a link to the Ardruino. I wrote a small program and was surprised at how easily I had created my first robot. I’m not sure I can call it autonomous but it drove without me offering any guidance.
