There are dozens of reasons to study and experiment with robots. They are a tremendous learning experience, provide inspiration, and open doorways to give us a glimpse of the future. But, above all, robots should be . . .
Whether you’re surprised and delighted by the fact that your Robosapien acts just like Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber, or you experience overwhelming exhilaration when your micromouse makes it through the maze for the first time, robots should be fun. Pure, unadulterated fun.
Here’s a great example – thanks to Google Video. The video (link below) doesn’t provide any details about the robot or the builders other than the boy joy riding on the robot is named Zach. However, it’s easy to see how much fun they are having, and that they will obviously do it again.
The simple message?
Go forth and do likewise!
