|I bought the _Robot_Builders_Bonanza_ last weekend; the book has some great imformation, but the writing style is so dry. I keep it on the nightstand to help me go to
I have several applications for robots, but nothing to do with my work, just a new hobby. I'll be getting your book for my brother Ron for Christmas - he is a robotics professional here with
Harley-Davidson, and worked on the robots at the Peavey Electronics manufacturing facility in Mississippi for about 10 years, but I don't think he has ever had "fun" with robots like he will with your book!
As a book suggestion, I would love to see a compilation of BEAM robot projects, with photos of the robots, the designers' photos and email addresses, schematics, parts lists and project notes. Something that I can read and enjoy, and if
I wanted I could build it myself, or correspond with the person listed. Now that I think about it, this type of book would take a lot of research time, making it best suited for an undergrad/grad engineer student. I would love to do something like this,
but I can't quite afford to be self-employed yet. On the other hand, I will need to select a PhD dissertation topic in a few years...
