I thought I was one of the first robot fanatics to sign up when Agostini Japan announced the Robi humanoid robot kit, but obviously some other people are way ahead of me. "Tubeegle" has already gotten far enough in the assembly process to try playing Rock, Paper, Scissors with Robi:
In my case, the 14th Robi issue arrived Saturday morning, so I'm a long way behind. At first my strategy was to wait until I had all of the issues, then tackle the assembly. But, after watching videos like this, and realizing that there may be a lot that can be done with a particially complete robot, I may start assembling each issue as they arrive. Anyway, that will have to wait until I get back from RoboGames.
