I'm working to get funding for a robotics project and I thought I would post it up here.
NineFour is a four legged, nine degree of freedom quadruped that will be able to navigate autonomously or via web interface.
Rather than post all the info again here, I will give the link to the Kickstarter.com listing: http://kck.st/9Kog9n
Kickstarter is a funding website that allows donations as low as $1 using the secure amazon payment system.
Basically you make a pledge, and if the project meets the funding goal, you get charged the pledge amount, if the project does not meet the goal, no one is charged and the project expires.
They do this so that no one ends up paying for a project that does not meet its goal.
As you all know, robotics are an expensive hobby, so as an exchange for donations, I will be offering various rewards through kickstarter.com.
The main goal of this project is to create a very detailed construction document/website that will allow others to use my designs and information to create their own robots, as well as eventually allow people to remotely control my robot.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer.
I greatly appreciate any help you could offer, or if you know anyone who would be interested in helping.
