  • Hey Mitch, awesome post. I had a good laugh at your response to the final Food For Thought where you spin the question to a Darwinian point of view.

     

    I find your take on programming with voice quite interesting. I can't imagine a day not using some sort of keyboard to control a computer, even if it's one of those fancy high-efficiency keyboards where you combine sounds, not letters (like a stenographer).

  • Hi Silas,

    Hope you're enjoying the course so far. I felt the exact same way when I was opening the SparkFun Inventor's Kit. It felt rather familiar from previous experience playing with some of the LEGO Mindstorms kit (though I never had a whole set to really dive into) and from a course I took in college where I had to build a remote controlled "battle bot" type vehicle. Though, since it was all remote controlled, there was very limited programming involved.

    It seems like we have similar backgrounds when it comes to this course.

    So far, I've enjoyed the course quite a bit and I've learned a lot about the Arduino! Seems like you're a bit further in the course than I am, so I look forward to seeing what you do as your final project.

  • Robotics are amazing and the technology is needed for the present and future of world developments. However it can be useful and at the same time be problematic.

    Sensors and other mechanisms are not at all perfect, these devices can fail and especially in areas where it is most needed and critical places.

    Computer software must be in place to monitor, halt, repair or alert in situations of failure, even human being get sick and need repairs.

    Trust cannot only be place of material things or in fact the level of trust and where trust is placed should always be evaluated, monitored and tested. These checks and balances should be used to constantly monitor for improvements to avoid catastrophe.

  • It’s here! (link below), you can find subgroups on the right side panel on main group pages.  The 2022 page was late to be built I think.
