Get a Hobby - Robotics!

Posted 8 May 2007 at 15:01 UTC by Rog-a-matic Share This

A new book Get a Hobby!: 101 All-Consuming Diversions for Any Lifestyle explores Ant Farming, Ice Sculpturing, Lego Building, and yes - Robot Building! That's right, a few pages past Quilting and just before Rubber Stamping is a section on that once obscure endeavor where the tools of choice are a dremel, a soldering iron, and a Kernighan and Ritchie book. Author Tina Barseghian is a contributing editor of ReadyMade, a do-it-yourself magazine focusing on art and design, and whose husband Lloyd tinkers with robots himself. Seeing robot building listed right alongside mainstream crafts is quite amazing for those of us who have dabbled with it since disco was stylish.
