    Only 1 Week Left to Enter Your Project!

    Greetings!
    Just a quick reminder to everyone that there's only one week left to enter your project in the Trossen Robotics Community Project Contest!

What better way to learn than to share one another's knowledge and experience? This contest has proven to be incredibly popular, with community member's projects profiled on sites such as Gizmodo, Engadget, MAKE, technabob, Gizmag, G4TV Attack Of the Show - Robot News, and many others!

    I would enter in Argos, but, he's just not ready yet.. I still have way too much to do on him. Currently, he's just a glorified computer on a iRobot Crate!

    Thanks, Connor

    I have a machine to enter so I better get my butt in gear and write it up. Thanks for the heads up!

    Sorry, What I really meant to say was I was not sure if it will be judged in an incomplete state!.

    Well, it's up to you. If you would like to hold off until next round (or the round after, etc) when it is complete, you're more than welcome to!
