This blog will follow my experiences working through the MAKE: Robot Build contest [http://makezine.com/robotbuild/]. This promotion is presented by the folks at MAKE Magazine [http://makezine.com], a fantastic DIY publication for those of us who like to tinker with technology and crafts. If you have never seen this magazine, make sure you check it out.
For the contest, we will be building a CoasterBot; a robot based on a body made out of CD media. I have purchased a robot kit from Jameco Electronics (the sponsor of the contest) which should arrive tomorrow.
