Excerpt from the article:
After two years of hard work, experimentation, testing, and ups and downs, our robot is ready. The Arduino Robot was presented for the first time during Maker Faire Bay Area 2013. But for us it’s not only a matter of launching a new product. It’s more important to share a story of how a passion for tinkering is helping us explore new, unexpected roads. That’s why I asked David Cuartielles, co- founder of Arduino and the member of our team who has spent more time and sweat on the robot, to reveal how it all happened.
