I travel a lot for my job. As I was walking through the airport today, I was thinking it would be nice to bring parts of my projects along to mess around with during down time.
As I was going through the "purple glove treatment" at security, I realized that bringing a circuit board with wires sticking out everywhere, with a dynamite looking device attached (the battery) might raise some unwanted attention at the airport. Okay, okay, I wouldn't have the battery actually attached for travel, but you get my point.
Have any of you "traveled" with your robots before? I thought of putting it in checked luggage, but I'm afraid some paranoid TSA employee might wheel my bag out back, throw it into a bomb crucible and blow it up. Just to be safe.
I guess this is one of those things that have to stay at home. Thoughts?
