Robots and Apple Cider.

Update: The Ann Arbor News covered the Lego Sumo Event. Read all about it.

Sumobot6 was held at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum this past Saturday. This was my first attempt at building a sumo robot… I sure learned a lot. (Such as “What it’s like to be beaten by a six-year-old.”) I did pretty well too. The concept of my robot (named “YellowStreak”) was simple: move fast, run away. Photos will be available on the SumoBot6 site as well as the Lego Robotics Group of Ann Arbor site. I was resposible for video work at the event. If all goes well I should have something put together by the end of the year.

Gina and I visited Parmenter’s Northville Cider Mill on Sunday. The mill is on a beautiful plot of land a few minutes from our house. Uncluttered by “attractions” and rides, the trip was relaxing and enjoyable. We bought the usual cider mill fare, as well as some wine (very tasty), and of course cider (which we used to make Alton Brown’s “Apple Mac and Cheese“). [Local Link to Recipie]
