The Chicago Area Robotics Group met at the Schaumburg Public Library on Sunday Oct. 9 from 1 to 4 PM.
There were some topics of interest. The one that was on every one’s mind is the Library Maker Day on Oct. 15 at the Schaumburg Public Library. Mark will be visiting the library beforehand to get an idea of where we will be located. Everyone is welcomed! This promises to be an exciting event.
I was looking at old magazines the other day and found a Color Computer Magazine dated October 1984. While I was skimming through it, I found a brief robotics article. Since the person that provided insight was and continues to be an influential figure within the robotics community I decided to scan the article and post it here.
I'm working on a new Prototyping station that will be both battery and DC powered. I'm looking for ideas on how to build the circuit so that it switches cleanly between battery power and DC power as well as charge the NIMH batteries.

Here is the circuit so far, I left off a lot of ancillary components like filtering and noise suppression for sake of legibility. I would love suggestions on improving this that anyone may have.
Attached is a PDF file of the cover of the issue that features the Parallax Mini Sumo article that a team of ChiBots members put together late last year. Congrats to all!
I received this letter today April 24, 2013. Congratulations and thank you to those that attended this event on ChiBots' behalf. The letter follows.
President Elect here!
I'm in the process of gathering up the materials and responsibilities for the psoition of president of our fine club. As one of the newer members, I will need advise and feedback from the membership.
In addition to running the day to day biz for the club, I also have a goal to make us more fun and productive. Members have been discussing various chages, many from eric gregori. The initial tasks will involve determining what we can do to move these from suggestions to implementation.
Hear ye! Hear ye!
