I found out that my dad has plenty of electronic parts at his storage. I am going to use some parts to build a beam robot. My dad and I also might build a computer operated robot that will use a PLC microcontroller. He worked with them a lot. We will probably start on it after we build our computer. Since my sis is a computer hog I guess I should build a computer. I still goto read some books that teach me how to build one. Any way I found a really great site that teaches you how to build a BEAM robot. But I cant remember the url right now. My dad doesnt think its a good hobby to build robots. So I just told him I needed them for an experiment ( technically it IS a experiment do to the fact that I need to EXPERIMENT if it works ). He thinks its just a waste of money if I buy the parts. But the thing is,I dont know how I am going to get the solarcell. My mom definately wont take me since she hates radioshack. So I will tell dad if he can take me. Hopefully he will say yes. If that wont work than I will have to open a account in the bank and order it from my solarbotics catalog I should be getting real soon. Talk to you all later.

Almost done creating my S-1. I just need to get a led.

I bought the stuff I needed for my symet-bot. Only to find that I ran out of flux for my soldering gun!*Scary background music*Hopefully my mom or my dad will take me to radioshack to get some more. While I am at it,I should probably get a smaller motor too. He he.

I finished a robot thats named e-2. He uses a servo controller and two arms. I can transform him from a walker to a robocup player,or a sumo bot. I will soon post pics of him on this site. I am working on a new robot project. Oh,I almost forgot. My robot also breakdances. Remember to come visit sparkjims and I irc channel #robots. Also remember that the server is called irc.mircx.com.

Sparkjim and I made an mIRC channel. The server is irc.mircx.com and the channel is #robots just for whoever likes robots. My nick name will be bart. Sparkjims nickname will just be sparkjim.

I was thinking about the robot I was going to build. I Might not make it quadpedal. I might just make it a explorer and use wheels instead. Then later I might put a robotic arm on it.

I started making schematics for my next robot. It will be my first robot project. I plan on making it quadpedal. It's going to use 6 servos and a Basic stamp 2.
