Pictures From Robot Meeting

I went up to the monthly meeting of DARC - Denver Area Robot Club. We meet in Highlands Ranch, which is a Southern suburb of Denver. That makes it a little under an hour drive North for me. It is always great to see what other have built, show off my projects, and share ideas. It is always inspiring. I was a little hesitant to go this time, as I wasn't sure how many people would be there, what with the weather, the time of year, and it being a holiday weekend. But considering the factors, it was a very good turnout. I'm afraid I didn't have anything new to show off. But there were some people new to the meeting, so I was able to show off some of my old stuff.

Your robots are so cool!!! I wish I knew how to build robots for real. Maybe someday when I have a car (L.A. sucks without one), and I get some of my other priorities out of the way, I will look for a robot club around here. I have a feeling there are a lot in California.

Thanks for you comment Lisa! I wish I could take credit for all the robots shown, but my personal collection is actually pretty small.
My Tuna-Bot is the only full homebrew robot I've built. I've also worked on a few Lego robots. And I've worked on an HC11 board, and had mostly built a Lego platform for it, but that never quite got finished.
Good luck with getting into building robots if you ever can!
