Well the one we made this year weight about 55kg, starts at about 1m tall and telescopes up to 3m tall. Here’s a quick rendering. I don’t have a video of the final robot and it’s currently in a crate on it’s way to Sydney.

Hello all,

My name is Hamish I joined up last week.

Interests: electronics prototyping and repair, beer, motorcycles, computer games, reconfigurable computing with FPGAs, image processing and computer vision, algorithm optimisation, beer.

Looking to learn: anything and everything, 3D printing seems fun and useful

Studying/Working: My day job is as a “Research Support Specialist” at QUT, it basically boils down to helping researchers interface with university computing resources i.e. HPC platform, data-acquisition and processing workflows, code optimisation etc. I’ve previously worked as an Electrical/Control System engineer at a few mine sites in the Pilbara. I’ve recently submitted my master’s thesis for examination and am looking to build some cool things with my new found free time.

Qualifications: Hopefully a M.Phil soon. B.Eng (Electrical).
