Saturday night I saw a commercial for Honda's ASIMO. Although I had allready read about this walking robot, I was still amazed to see it on a T.V. commercial. Maybe amazed is not the word, excited is more like it!

To see ASIMO walking around on Television instead of an obscure website or book, made me feel like the future is just a little closer than it was the day before.

However, the commercial ran very late at night, so who knows how many people really saw it. But at least I got to see it!

I just recieved most of the parts for the line-following robot yesterday. I worked on the line-following circuit today, but I am still a little confused so I will be re- reading about it tonight. I will probably practice soldering this weekend and buy more supplies and tools.

I am hoping to get Sandwich done by the 18th of next month so I can show it off to my parents when they come to town.

I just wanted to thank Steve Rainwater for certifying me as an Apprentice. I will keep everyone updated on my progress with my line-following robot, Sandwich. (I just ordered the parts yesterday. I should actually be able to get somewhere in the next couple of weeks.)
