I have been building gizmos, gadgets and robots since I was young.Recently started building various proof of concept modules relating to autonomous humanoid robotics.This has always been an "obsession" of mine. Growing up in the areas I did and the times I did it was deffinitely odd and and different to want to build such a thing as a robot. Robots were thought of as toys or just in movies. I watched painfully as Heath Kit and others floundered in trying to grab the publics attention. I think, hopefully, that the timing is more appropriate for domestic or personal robotic aides to emerge. The hardware has certaintly come a long way aswell as our concepts in programming. What is needed now is for me and others like me to pioneer and help show the overly cautious captains of industry that a real need and market exists for such a product.
