02/24/05 - Mini Sumobots! Sumobots are small robots that try
to push each other out of a ring, just as human Sumo wrestlers
do. This class is a ton of fun, and you can check it out HERE.
These pages contain class information, construction and assembly
tips and a page with lesson plans and classroom details.
10/6/04- Added a page about the Sharp
GP2D12 infrared ranging sensor. This is a cool little sensor
that uses triangulation to determine distance.
10/06/04- Another major update for the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Robot
Project. The Hydrobot is now at Rev. 1.2, and the changes include
a new Bluetooth
