A challenge in hardware

So having spent the last 5 years being a full-time parent (That is, 2 years home as an actual full time parent and the rest having a full time job but other than that focusing completely on my kids) it was time to get a hobby.

Having spent far too much time in the virtual world of code, I miss the smell of burnt electronics and the feel of a newly milled aluminium edge I decided to build something electro-mechanical. The Rhex robot looks like a beautifully simple design.

This blog is started after-the-fact and will start with a series of retrospective posts about the start of the project.
