MAKE: Volume 19 Robots
Make Magazine had a special Robots issue for volume 19.
We had an article in there about some of the older vintage personal robots and how to enhance them. Many people may think that just because something is old that it is obsolete. That is not the case! Many of the old robots can still perform well and there are many ways to upgrade them without scrapping the original electronics. In some cases where the task is beyond the original robot brain you can treat the robot as an intelligent peripheral device and offload the heavy processing to a newer system. It was a fun article with some great pictures. The links that went with the article can be found here:
If you get to read the article I hope you enjoy it! Lots of other good articles in this issue so it is worth purchasing a back issue if you can.
