- Jun 21, 2004Vlad,
Would you consider keeping us posted with regards to
the progress on your current project? Your
webcam-controlled robot(s) venture is a highly
imaginative, albeit a potentially challenging,
project. It's a step or two above what I'm used to
hearing about. Cheers to you for taking on the idea.
I would actually like to get involved with such a
project, though I'm no roboticist. In fact, I'm a
mathematician. But robotics is what got me into math
in the first place, and I know my coding. And have
done some considerable research in the field of
P.S. Feel free to shoot me an eletter if you don't
feel comfortable posting.
