If you see something post it here and if you can add more information about a thing reply to that post below.
Wouldn't it be cool to build a robot for the makerspace?
It could greet users, play games with them, interact with them.
The Poppy project looks perfect, and it is programmed in Python (and uses iPython notebooks as examples, which are awesome). It can also be programmed in a simpler graphical language similar to Scratch which makes it accessible to more members.
We could get some funding for the servos and ODROID..
