June 18, 2006 | General | No comments

Here are my photos from Robogames 2006 as a Flickr photoset. Later, I’ll get all of my video files uploaded onto YouTube (they are much cooler, saw some great sparks and general robot destruction yesterday!) Carmen and I are going back today for even more. Stay tuned. Technorati Tags: Robogames, Robolympics, Robot Combat Addendum: We […]

Brainwagon Radio: Robogames 2005 and the ATI X700 Pro

Well, just got back from a day of watching robot combat at the Robogames competition in at San Francisco State. It continues tomorrow. You can look at my gallery of photos, and maybe even watch a Quicktime of a poor Robosapien competing in an event. More coverage on Slashdot. Even more photos, courtesy of Thomas […]

RoboGames (formerly ROBOlympics) is going to be held this weekend in San Francisco! How did I let this sneak up on me? II’ll have to shell out my $20 and go at least one of the days. Stay tuned for a report!

I suffered from a brief but fierce interest in podcasting back when podcasting was young. To me, it seemed like the ideal venue for people with eclectic interests to record their thoughts for sharing with others using the near ubiquitous mp3 players. I recorded 98 podcasts before giving it up and moving on. Here they […]

Megabyte Does a Handstand

June 19, 2006 | General | 1 comment

Megabyte is a robotic whirling dervish of destruction. I’ve seen him obliterate many a robot, throwing tires, axels, body armor in all directions. But I have never seen him do this. A very nice demonstration of what I suspect is an unplanned failure mode. Incidently, it took a bit of doing to figure out how […]

Today Carmen and I are celebrating our sixth anniversary! Thanks for putting up with all my crap honey! And now… a musical interlude. We are off to watch the Robogames today (oooh, romantic, I know) and maybe catch some delicious food at some as yet unnamed San Francisco restaurant, maybe drop in on a BBQ, […]

April 22, 2005 | Robotics, Tooting My Own Horn | No comments

Lem Fugitt has a nice robotics blog, and found my pictures of Robogames 2005. He nicely linked from his blog, so I thought I’d return the favor while tooting my own horn. His blog is cool too, wander around. Robot Dreams
