Went to the RoboGames in San Francisco today (and the Maker Fair a few weeks back), and hung out with Chris James for a good while. His droid is an amazing piece of work, and his blog has been a huge source of helpful information to me from the start. It was great to get a close up look at it. Chris got me and my boy, Max, into the pit area at the RoboGames by assuring the event staff repeatedly that we were with him. And he even handed me the remote control to drive his R2 around a few times. That showed some trust. I know every bit of agonizing work that has gone into his machine, so I took it very easy.
