Stopped by Xerocraft this morning to get some parts and came across this. It looks like the Xerocraft laser cutter is going to be down for some time. It apparently had a severe thermal event last night. Looked like someone had to empty a fire extinguisher into it.

Yeah, that is really unfortunate.

I made a new radio enclosure today at Xerocraft. This will hold my radio that is going in the robot.

+Steve Bowtie It has vent holes on the back. The radio also has thermal shutdown (would trigger in the summer when it used to be in my truck).

Robot now has speakers. Steering is down though until a new potentiometer comes in to fix the drunk steering problem. Will install spare head unit in the robot tomorrow if I can find all the parts.

Newest picture of my robot with the rubber weather stripping installed in the channels. Anyone want to run to Home Depot and get me some melamine coated plywood or MDF? +Patrick Armstrong reminded me that I should post this. I still need to actually update the build log on the Xerocraft forums. Have not done that in a long time.

Just had lunch and took a nice walk down at the Marina. Too bad I head back to Tucson in a few hours. :(

+Zack Williams We are also working on a few features the techy crowd should love as well. One, well, you saw, but there are a few ones we are experimenting with.

The robot is now a self driving boom box! I got the radio working. I still need to clean the wiring up, and the speakers are ok, but not great. I will probably replace them at some point. Ehh, $18 speakers, what can you expect. Also, a shot of the robot on its own trailer.

+Vincent Greene Yet it feels oh so right to be in a usable work-space. Don't worry though, +Steve Bowtie  David, and Conner are still around, I am sure the place will be a mess in no time.

Alright, some more pictures!  I still want to design and build a creeper that can negotiate home crawl spaces, search/destroy termites. It could be autonomous or tethered.  I'd like to make the steering committee meetings, but at present evenings are impossible for me.
