I am involved in Robotics in my high school, and I have built a couple of robots for my class. These robots range from a tiny sumobot to a monster-wiffle-ball-chucking tetrix robot for the FIRST competition. Doing all these projects has made me seriously think about majoring in robotics for college (I'm looking at WPI but if theres a better school out there I'm all ears!) Point is, all the robots I build are a part of my school and I always have other people doing other things to the robot. I want to build my own robot, one that is all mine that I put together with my own spit and prayers. I'm a little bit more ambitious than the $50 robot, so if anyone has any different suggestions I would be glad to hear them!
Thanks in advance!
