The first serious thoughts about launching this project actually came to my mind about 1997. It is a private project I run at home just for fun. It is purely inspiration-driven so I only work on it when I feel for it (preferably during rainy winter nights :). You could say it's a long term project...

As important as actually building the robot has been to play around in as many engineering fields as possible. I've not taken the easiest way out - I could have just bought many components off-the-shelf... I'm especially proud of the electronics and the motion control.

Here's the project policy, sort of:

Hence, the project spans over a wide range of engineering areas. Here are some examples: (Warning: buzz ahead;):

Some robot properties in short:

I also want to apologize for the lousy image quality - it's due to the equally lousy web-cam that came with my computer.
