Who or what was the first robot you ever read about or saw? (fictitious or real)

Metal Mickey, R2D2

What topics or issues in robotics interest you?

Pick and place, using EAPs instead of motors.

What have you done in robotics? What do you want to learn?

I haven't done anything yet. I am interested in using OpenCV for object recognition and making a robot that has an arm with a dextrous hand that can be used to automate biotechnology tasks -- the key is to make an easily programmable modular robotic system that includes a conveyer. Also I think it would be an interesting project to disassemble my old iPhone and see if we can design a robot that can put it back together -- ok maybe the iPhone is too ambitious but something else slightly complicated and build upwards from there.

Introduction

My name is Johan, I have a background in computer science. I have an interest in robotics, but have never built one. I know basic electronics.
