Hmmmm robots have always inspired me . . . they are just cool and fun . . . grown up legos I call them. Ive wanted to build robots since like 3rd grade . . . but I never had any outside influence to help me or teach me. I fiddled with electronics a little but never really made anything interesting. So I never built my first robot till sophomore year in college, when a prof offered me money to build my first. I chose Carnegie Mellon cause I knew they have a big robotics program. I went around my campus asking everyone I could find on help with it . . . my first robot turned out to be a failure, but I learned a lot trying to make it. After that robot, I figured out how to get funding, and I knew enough about robots after the first to try again. After your first, it gets much easier, so I just kept making them cause the funding just kept coming in. I also had that economic incentive that robots are the future, and knowing how to build a robot could make me a lot of money after I graduated.
So why did I make the site? Well, I realized that a lot of people like robots. And a lot want to build robots. But most never do cause they say things like 'I dont know where to start and I dont know anything about them.' Well, my site was basically designed so no one can any longer have that excuse. When I was making robots, there was no online resource for robots. No robot forums, no help sites, nothing. I had to figure out all this through mistakes and experimenting and really long boring books. So I wanted a one stop place for everyone to learn. Plus the tiny ad profit I make from the site pays for server costs and helps pay for my addiction to traveling around the world
And as for the humor, people learn much better when the material is made in a fun way
O and just so people know, I have only been making robots for about 4 years now, so using my site you can get as good as me in at most
4 as well
