I'm not picking on Roy Eltham, honest. It's just that he has the only ten-PING robot that pops up in a Google search. There were MANY of them. Did that first plywood robot even have a name? Did Parallax stock spike when people were buying PING & aluminum bracket ten-packs?
And if there is one among us who doesn't love "Hunt for Red October", please fess up. Seems to be a universally well-loved movie, right Publison/Jim?
"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
