Getting Started in Robotics

Getting Started

The October 2016 Meeting

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.

The Metal Pedagog

Metal RobotI 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.

Robot Magazine, July/August 2014

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!
