I just started as a side job to provide really cool, high quality kits to educators, hobbyists, and researchers. I design and manufacture the kits in-house with using CAD during the design phase, and CAM during the manufacturing phase. As a full time job, I develop software for "The Weather Channel", and have done so for five years now. I've been developing software for seven years total. I love integrating hardware and software, especially when it involves robotics. I've only been building robots for a little over a year now, so I'm still fairly new. I've also done much work with engine management systems (electronic fuel injection). I'm a big fan of the Motorola HC16 microcontroller, and the OOPic-R microcontroller. I'm the East Coast distributor for the OOPic-R line of microcontrollers from Savage Innovations.

So what do you guys think of the new R1 robotic platform from

What's cool about R1? What's not?

Fellow roboticists,

Please check out the new R1 robotics platform at:

At, our goal is to provide high quality personal robotic platforms, kits, and components to the robotics community.

Use our powerful and extensible R1 platform to design, implement, and test various robotic behaviors and tasks.

R1 comes in varous configurations for the beginner roboticist, as well as the advanced roboticist who already has controllers and sensors he/she wishes to use.

Also check out our movies of R1 roving around on our "Documents and Downloads" page.

If you have any questions or comments, please email them to me at:
