Expensive Kickstarter - World's First Earth Rover


  • I'm dreaming of an own rover...
    ...but I have not forgotten Hitchbot!

    Let it drive without bodyguard somewhere and soon your Earth Rover meets Hitchbot in robot heaven!

    Never set free defenseless bots on planets infected with humans!

    Ouch, nearly $2k US, wow. The design is quite nice I must say: simplistic yet functional as you would want/need for that type of platform. A more open source style design could probably hit closer to $750 and still have a ton of really nice features to make it a sure-funded Kickstarter.

    I am really envious of those waterproof wheel motors.

    Nice but...

    I waited it for them, I knew they were coming. They HAD to come. I had to wait until 2:40 to hear those overused words no one should ever say.

    Those words that mean, "we don't know what to do with it, hope you do."

    "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
  • Oh God, they said that:

    "The only real limit is your imagination"

    For decades now I have interpreted that phrase as:

    "Well, I'm not going to get much for my money then am I"
