This video is so much winning I can’t take it. Listen to those blocks go bing bing:
My group is awesome. We have a deep sperg, a chad, and a turtle (that’s me), and we get along very well as a team. None of us had touched a robot before this class and in three hours we were hacking away like it’s a kid’s toy. Which they almost are—a 100-IQ five year old could teach points. Turns out, robots are quite simple to understand and use, you just have to be careful is all because they’re just a bit dangerous and crash easily. But if you can grok encoders, you can understand them from the servos up to the programming because the damn thing is just a handful of servo motors moving the joints.
For the first time in a long time, my writing output hasn’t been reflecting my real life mental state. So this post is also meant to convey that things are actually pretty great lately.
