Well, first of all - Make sure you visit my girlfriends web pages:
I must give thanks to this website, where a lot of the info and manuals here come from
For more information on building your own robots - including both hardware and
software design aspects:
I found a guy on Flikr that makes (and sells) some of the coolest robots
out of found objects that I have ever seen! Check him out at
or visit his Flickr page here
First, I LOVE this banner!
Aside from that, this site offers over 250 vintage robots for sale
The Robot Hut
is an online museum that also has a physical presence if you care to see your favorite
robots in person. My favorite part of this site is the
3D photographic tour you can
take! Robots in 3D - what more
could you ask for! :)
Toy Collector is an online community for toy and model collectors.
Their mission is building ToyPedia, an wiki-based encyclopaedia
that will ultimately contain information about every toy and model
ever made and a marketplace dedicated to collectable toys and models.
This Wiki page is sort of like a chain letter electronic grab bag!
The Great Internet Migratory Box Of Electronics Junk
A paper craft model site with 8 pages dedicated to robots
Quiet a lot of the projects showcased on this site are robotic:
you can see some pretty cool home-built BEAM-type robots as well as
a few well-designed robot hacks
And since we are on the subject of reading, why don't you check out this web
site for some very interesting Science Fiction:
If you like to read as much as I do, then you need to check this site out. You can find
all of the books you need on robotics, computers and electronics as well as every other
subject under the sun. And you can get them for FREE!
I decided to put this link here in this spot because it sorta
bridges the links on either side of it. Like the next link, iOffer,
it is an alternative to the eBay monopoly. And like the previous
link, PaperBackSwap, it is a credit-based system. So instead of
bidding on items with cash, you use credits. You get more credits
by listing your own items for trade. The only cash that trades
hands is for shipping - and a lot of items even include free
shipping, so it's win-win... Check it out.
I can no longer in good faith recommend Listia.com to anyone. You
can read more on the reasons for that
For those of you who don't know me - I make it a habit to support small businesses
and to speak out against the big-box conglomerates that are taking over this
country. (That in itself deserves it's own page - soon to come) In the meantime,
if you remember what eBay used to be like when they started out 10-15 years ago,
you should really give iOffer a try. Sellers will appreciate no listing fees and
listings only expire when the item is sold. Buyers will notice a much more user
If you enjoyed the Little Tikes Collection, you'll probably like these, too
