Hello fellow Philly Roboticists.

We started the new year on a pretty good note. I'm glad to say we are still attracting new members while retaining our core membership.

We are planning to have a joint meetup at NextFab studio ( in March with Next Fab members, Philly Makers, Hive 76, and perhaps others. Stay tuned for details.

Some highlights from the first Meetup of 2012 (

- Projects that were discussed:
-- Floating submersible concrete SeaSteading platform. Attempting to secure Kickstater funds
-- Open Pilot controller based quadrotor
-- Robomagellan contest
-- Star Trek game / bridge simulation

I looked into Penn State Abington robot contests ( It looks like they will not be holding their Mini Grand Challenge contest this year, but it will hopefully return in the future. However, they will be having thier Trinity Firefighting Competition at 12:30pm on Saturday, April 21, 2012 ( Let me know if there is any interest in competing or even just attending this contest.

- Microprocessors / boards discussed
