I’m Building an Arduino Robot

motorshieldAfter having taught a few undergraduate mathematics courses that apply calculus and differential equations to circuits, all the while not knowing what a resistor or a capacitor could even look like, teaching myself how to solder them into a circuit board was cathartic. Thanks to a previous episode of my favorite CBC podcast, Spark, I’ve been inspired to take up robotics as a hobby: below is a photo of my adafruit motor shield for the Arduino robot I’m assembling, slowly and carefully. A part of me wishes I had gotten into this hobby a lot sooner, but I guess the technologies I’m using have only been around for a few years.
