I am not new to robots and have always been interested in them. It is not so much robots but androids that fascinate me. I know that as far as androids go we have a long road ahead but at least some progress is being made like Honda's Asimo. I am looking to start building and creating but have no intention of building a fully functional android ,though, and am trying to keep my first long series of projects simple so I can learn the basics and get used to things. I do hope ,however, that my beginning projects and experiences can lead me to start doing android related projects ,but I know that is one way into the future. I have read several tutorials and google has been my friend for about a month now and am already in the drawing stages of my first robot. Well I really just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself and am looking forward to being apart of this community.
