I've long been fascinated by robots; in high school, I participated ina FIRST robotics team that left a lasting imprint on my engineeringcareer. However, since then, I'd never gotten around to building arobot.Last month, I finally started building one which I hope this is thepredecessor of a number of future robots. This is a writeup of the project, written as the robot is worked on. My intention is that thisserves two roles:1. The main role is to serve as a braindump and knowledge store for future robotics endeavours for myself.2. This may be useful for others building robots.Now, I need to actually finish this thing.
