Student’s musings during our robotics class
Earlier this week a group of students and I were discussing the merits of creating robots looking like humans or modelling robots on animals. The word “robot” brings to mind a human-like creature, obviously designed to make our lives easier and less burdensome. Step back a little.. and think. Robots, like machines arise out of a need to solve a problem or our curiosity to create what we imagine. Lego Mindstorms offers a huge leeway into modelling, programming, prototyping and testing robots.
