Well, its been a pretty crazy summer. July was insane, getting the three production BrainBots done and delivered to Dartmouth. To the right is what they looked like a couple weeks before delivery.
To the left is what one of them looked like once it was done, on the day I delivered them. The second camera (the left one from the robot's perspective) is a fake, mainly put there to balance the look. The lens is real, but the camera box is plastic.
So, next up - I'm building three more of them, for another Dartmouth researcher. This set is going to be especially exciting, because the "profits" from the robots are going to buy me (well, HUV) a Dimension uPrint 3D printer
. I'm especially excited about that because (a) its a cool new tool to play with, and (b) it will allow me to start working on NanoSeeker
again. Not to mention the time savings on not having to wait for printed parts to be shipped up here from Dartmouth.
