All,

Mike, our host, has informed me that the temperatures in his loft might be in the high 80's during Thursday's meetup. I plan to hold the meetup anyway (veteran members may recall that we had similar operating conditions at another one of our long-time venues). I will try to remember to bring some extra water.

In the meantime, here are some robot links to tide you over until the meetup:

Robot that Boston Dynamics (of BigDog fame) is providing to some of the DARPA Robotics Challenge teams. It runs on hydraulics and Linux:

Robotic rock band from Japan that the designers hope to send into space (I think I saw this cartoon on Saturday mornings growing up):

A RaspberryPi based aquatic drone, on kickstarter:
