David one of our local robotic celebrities. Is looking to upgrade his new toddler named Adam Z1. It is a interesting campaign which will need some help to succeed.

We have some cooling issues that may or may not be resolved in our normal meeting space. I am choosing to delay this months meeting till July 28th. So we can still do Moon day on the 21st and meet the week after for our normal stuff.  Sorry for any plans this changes, I do not want 20 guys/gals stuffed into a hot room.  We will have someone there to meet any one that did not get this memo.

New +TurtleBot base looks like a step in the right direction. It is black so it has to be better. :>

This months meeting will take place April 14th. It starts around noon like always. This month we will introduce the Willow Garage +TurtleBot donated to the +DPRG. We will need to come up with a name. Feel free to send your ideas in response to this. We will review quite a few things about the hardware platform and the software platform as I have found out through its use it will be a general talk and demonstration meeting. If you have anything to bring in and show feel free as I think we will have plenty of time to do so. After the meeting i would like to gather the roborama gang together so we can finish up talks about the next roborama and roborama 2012b.

Thanks,
Jason

+TurtleBot running with a +ASUS xtion pro live. With a mount from www.iheartrobotics.com. This build from the ground up will be documented soon with ROS fuerte running on +Ubuntu 12.04 with a custom board designed by store.iheartengineering.com team. It has been a fun build so far.
