Introduction of a former lurker

Hi everyone,

Sorry I didn't see anywhere else I could post my introduction but the general area.

I'm pretty much new to robotics aside from my old lego mindstorms and various solar powered pre-made robot toys. I've always yearned to have my own humanoid kit but had the problem of not having enough savings set aside after finishing my studies back in 2006. I may have a late start but I'm happy to finally enter the hobby.

Nice to meet you all :)

I live in British Columbia, Canada and hope there are some members nearby (be it the same country but in a different province or across the border) who could help point me out to a good distributor or online store I can go to?


Thanks for reading,
-Geppetto

Welcome!

Geppetto is really a very appropiate name for a robot builder, hehehe.

Well, you already are in a very nice robot shop, Robosavvy :)

Which type of robots are you more interested in? Bipeds, quadrupeds, hexapods, vehicles? Programming, electronics, mechanics?

By the way, I've never seen more beatiful natural landscapes than in Canada, I hope I will be there for holidays any time soon

Hello and thank you for your greeting, I wasn't expecting such a quick reply :lol:

I am currently interested in humanoid robots although I wouldn't mind exploring other types once I'm more experienced. 8)

Hopefully shipping to Canada with robosavvy isn't too bad. :oops:

edit: I'm in the more rainy part of Canada :lol:
