Yeah i think its been a while since ive posted....yea it has. Well since my last posts lots of stuff has happened. Firstly im attending UCF school of engineering next week :-)

As far as robots go ive done Alot, I never got to build the GPS robot that was planned in the last post. I built a bunch of little things that i cant think of right now. At the end of 2001 i built an onager, which is a type of seige engine(catapult). Then last summer i went to North Carolina State University and built a small robot with custom electronics that made the robot able to follow lines and play music. Ill post it in the gallery its called The Funk so look it up. Then last year i made a small robot designed to drive through airvents, it was for a science project, the title kind of explains it "Value Engineering a Multi-Purpose computer controlled robotic platform" Ill post pics of that its call it "VERP"

All the while i Was competitng in FIRST robotics. In 2002 we came in 9th place in our division at the national level. In 2003 we won our regional competition. Ive learned alot building thoes bots. Goto http://www.firstrobotics.net to look at bots, my team number was 212. And go to www.usfirst.org to see what the games were.
