Great Article on the Hybrid

edited July 2007 in Projects Vote Up0Vote Down
Hey Everyone,

There is a great article by Ken Gracey in this month's Robot magazine about the hybrid outdoor bot. Lots of good details, photos and some great oops stories! You can get a little preview at http://www.botmag.com/

Great job Ken!

    Hey Whit,

    Thanks for the compliments. It's no big deal, really. I probably didn't spend as much time understanding the technical issues as I wanted to, mostly because my primary job at Parallax relates to business.·When I·can make the time I·truly enjoy robotics.

    By the way, all the parts on that robot were made on a small desktop CNC. Since then we've acquired a Haas CNC·in our office at Parallax.·The Haas·can spit out parts as fast as you feed it metal. With my desktop·CNC, each of those parts would take hours to make.

    For those who don't receive ROBOT, I attached the article to this posting.

    Sincerely,

    Ken and Chris,

    Thanks - Now I can e-mail it to my friends. I guess you guys will put this on the Parallax website too.
