I've been a programmer for years focused in the video game industry. I'm currently in school for Robotics. I started this group for everyone who has an interest in robots and electronics, regardless of education or career background.

What kinds of robotics projects are you most interested in working on?

Humanoids! Cyborgs have always fascinated me and I am currently working on a sensor suit. I am also a NAO developer and plan to do a lot with the platform using game engines and virtual environments.

How would you describe your experience with robots?

Absolute adoration. I have always tinkered with Legos and computers. I started programming (in Basic) at age 8 and have moved up from there.

What do you hope to gain from this Meet-up group?

Mainly, I'm interested in meeting other enthusiasts who want to work on various projects together. I'd like a group where beginners can come, watch and learn along side advanced professionals who have years of experience.

What Annika OBrien is saying about this Meetup Group

The members are what make the club so much fun. I learn something new every time we get together.

    Hello Annika,
    I just joined the group, and suggested a seminar that I thought you and all of the members would be interested in. Let me know that you got it.

    Anika, I'm an organizer of the StarLight Festival, a science and Astronomy festival in Big Bear this May. I wanted to see if the group was interested in participating? Here's a link to our temporary website while ours is being built.­­ Please email me so I can fill you in, there will be lots of robotics etc.

    Westec registration is open now - believe its in October.
    I'm closer to launching the network between universities.
    I want to have high school and middle school kids see if they can design 3D printers and have college students design a wire fed 3D printer. Having a student team competition may offer some kids tuition free scholarships.
    Can students design & make 3D printers to not cost over $400 for a printer head & parts to make things 24"x24"x36"?
    Hope your doing well.

    Hello Annika, I suggested Jet Propulsion Lab Open House in July but don't have time to ask more than you and a few other people if they want to go. If you need a guest speaker to talk about design specifications for airplanes & UAV's I can help some Sunday meetup. Since weight & balance is critical for fixed wing designs that can be part of the talk but it may take 10-25 minutes for each topic if people ask more questions. An out of balance UAV/robot may use 20%-30% more energy than if balanced.
