Subject: [beam] eBay Auction - Hextile Sheet and Hextiles Assembled By Mark Tilden
http://cgi.ebay. com/ws/eBayISAPI .dll?ViewItem& item=33010495510 6
As a former member of this group, I am posting information about an eBay auction that
may be of interest to the BEAM Robotics hobbyists that frequent this message board.
I am currently running an eBay auction for an unpopulated Hextile Sheet (Version 1.2) and
three populated Hextile Boards (Hx 1.0, Hx 1.0, Dx 1.0) assembled by Mark W. Tilden.
I had received the Hextile Sheet and populated Hextiles from Tilden a number of years
ago, however I never experimented with them, as I didn't want to risk damaging these
extremely rare Hextiles.
I am currently finishing up my last year of studying engineering and I am having trouble
paying my bills, so I am posting these incredibly rare items up on eBay.
I hate to part with them but my financial situation necessitates their sale.
I hope a follow BEAM hobbyist can make good use of them, and at the same time help an
engineering student finish up school.
- Hello hello,
This question is directed mostly towards Wilf, Dave, Wolfgang, or
possibly our Friendly Hogfather but if anyone else has any info please
Is there any published literature that make mention or is devoted to
turbots? The only references I have been able to find is Living
Machines and the article by Wolfgang in Servo Magazine. Mark makes some
promises of more in-depth papers in Living Machines but he does not seem
to have followed through. I would really like to have some citeable
material and I hope someone can help me out.
- I hope your being sarcastic, as the Hextile Sheet and Hextiles were sent to me by Mark W.
Tilden himself as the return address on the envelope (he shipped them to me in) verifies. I
can say with absolute certainty that these items were legally obtained.
Attached is an image of the return address from the envelope which Mark mailed them to me
in, as well as, an image the of note written by Tilden that describes the contents of the
"The proper authorities at Los Alamos National Security, LLC (formerly Los Alamos National
Laboratory) will be informed this upcoming Monday of this attempted sale of materials stolen
from the Lab during the period that Mark Tilden was employed there."

YFH, though your intentions are surely good, please note that Kyle
(krader356) has mentioned that Tilden gave him these boards in the
past. He is well within his right to sell them and far from a thief.
