Well, I've been working on updating my Robotics web site, www.robotx.8m.com adding a whole bunch of stuf I didn't get around to yet. I havn't re-uploaded it yet, but that's coming. (The entire site is available at the address, just not my newest version.)

Since we've made quite a few modifications to our mobile robot project "George", I'll have to get some newer pics of our progress. My QuickCam died; I'll have to use my dad's Snappy and hook it up to my camcorder for some images.

In case anyone is wondering about me, here's the run-down:

  • Age: 15
  • Highschool Student @ McBain Public, McBain, MI (2001-2002 State Basketball CHAMPS!)
  • Nearest robotics club: Traverse City ~1 1/2 hour drive
  • Stuff I do: Certified Lifeguard (Summer job! Whoohoo!) Robotics (duh) Amateur Film Making Autographs History/Politics/Military/Law-Enforcement buff

    You wern't THAT interested, were you?

  • My website, www.robotx.8m.com detailing my George mobile robot project and containing other interesting info is now under "update reconstruction".

    I plan on re-designing the site to make it more intuitive and easier to find information... and then cram it full of that information. I've noticed that there is a lot of interesting robotics information to be found on the Internet, but the problem IS finding it. Through my site, I hope to consolodate some of the cool robotics things I've found over the years and make them available to others. Now if only some people would discover my site!!!

    As for my George mobile robotics project itself, me and my partner plan on completing the new drive train this summer (details will be posted to the new site), and also finally integrate all of our evil plans for world domination... er... gadgets... onto our platform. Armed with the money from a new summer job, we can hopefully get this thing exploring my house before too long!
