I was sure that·
UPEW (no, I couldn't go) would have galvanized people into running home·
and building cool things.·
I keep checking in to see new robots people have been building, but it seems even quieter than before. Sure, maybe·
some people are·
on vacation and traveling. But surely·
others are home·

my latest little robot·
this week and post some info & videos here later. It's built from a plastic Sterilite trash can, and will have a nifty walking gait. Lots of bling on it. Just a fun little remote-controlled·

I combined elements of Robbie, Knight Rider, the Silent Running drones Huey Dewey & Louie, Wall-E, and the 2001 Space Pod. Here's an early video of·

·"If you build it, they will come."
"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."
- Pablo Picasso
