How's it Bean?

One of my friends pointed me at MAKE magazine's podcasts about making Bean Bots. Since then, I've managed to get my hands on this book. (And hey, is Hrynkiw a hockey name or what?) I forsee a trip to Radio Shack in our future. Also the dismemberment and parts-scavenging of those no-longer working CD and tape players we have lying around.

Tomorrow is Holy Wednesday again, and BG is coming over to see if we can make her laptop work. Most likely, we'll end up sitting around finding weird stuff online and trashing Dell. BG has her very own blog now, so if you want to laugh, go check it out. Because it's funny, I mean. Hopefully she won't abuse it to dish dirt on me. ^_^

Cute little bot! I don't think that delicate little chap will be winning 'Robot Wars' any time soon though... ;)

Too true! It would be like an ant on the Autobahn. Could be fun to build, though. Fishy is intrigued. :)

He's definitely not winning against Megatron. Ouch.

I dunno. He might sneak between his toes and pinch that really tender part. Like an Achilles's heel only. . . different.

You guys are always doing something fun!

And when I first read this, I thought you wrote "bean pots" and the comments just didn't make sense. After a quick re-read the light went on.

Ha! That WOULD be confusing! :)
