  1. Hi,

    Referring to your:
    “The MarvelMind Grumbler robot (tinyurl.com/grumbler-alive) looked really hot, but no website or blog updates in a long, long time…”…

    You are right. I moved to another country, and other work fully occupied me. But I have a few robots in stock. They are slightly updated as compared with the model shown on the web. Not much further development, but they are ready for a higher-level programming anyway. All basic subroutines are already there, open-sourced (assembler) and waiting for those who are interested playing with the robot programming :-)

    Best regards,
    Maxim
