    That is the coolest thing I’ve seen all day.
    …if only it could turn that pabst into guiness…

    Neat! Needs some edge detection sensors, though!

    Less beer, more edge detecting! :-)

    I’m very sorry about the pabst. I needed a can, and it’s all I had. It wasn’t even mine, I swear :)

    Hopefully I’ll be able to relocate some sensors soon so it can stop itself before it plummets off the table. The video made me laugh the first time I watched it because of the way it just tips off the edge.

    Wow, that is very ‘cute’. when will you make and sell them for those of us that love miniatures!?! it’s lack of ability to detect edges reminds me of a ‘baby’ robot, which it looks like. Enjoyed it’s antics so much. Thanks!
