ROBOlympics Update

The Robotics Society of America (RSA) just sent out their monthly newsletter including a reminder that there is only one month left to register if you want to compete in the ROBOlympics.

There's also an interesting note about the Bay Area Robot Soccer Team. San Francisco State University (SFSU), David Calkins, and BuffingtonFX are putting together the Mirosot Robot Soccer team - and they're looking for your help. The next RSA meeting is Wednesday, Feb 2nd on the SFSU campus (YIPES! That's today!).

They promise to explain everything about robot soccer, show videos of past competitions, and get you real excited about joining their team. If I wasn't 5,000 miles away, I'd definitely be there.

A copy of the RSA newsletter and the relevant links is attached below:
