I've been tinkering with robots on and off for as far back as I can remember. This section chronicles my experiments and accomplishments in the fascinating field of hobby robotics.

Initially all I had to work with were dismantled toys and old clocks. Things became really interesting when I started using Fischertechnik industrial modelling kits more than 30 years ago, and I am still using the same components for prototyping my robots today.

Another good way to get involved with robotics is with a software robot simulator like MindRover. In fact it was this engrossing virtual reality game that enticed me back into the world of robotics a few years ago after a long hiatus between university and establishing my family.

The following pages provide more detail about my robotics projects. I hope that you find something interesting or useful in them.
