The purpose of this site is to help people to crate their own hand-made robots.
The idea of this site appears in the March 2003, when American Mars research
vehicle landed to the Red Planet and start to transmit pictures.
And I thought ? if it is possible to see pictures from another planet,
why not to see pictures from another side of the Earth?
There are a lot of people, who have never been in my place and why not
to give them a chance to see different places and drive the robots somewhere
in another continent.


We are living in the World where high tech play outstanding role.
If you have a computer, connected to the Internet, you can be united with all
the people, who like modern technology.


Why we decide to create our own hand-made robot?
Yes, it is well-known fact, that now you can order from E-Commerce site any
kind of robot and do what you want with it.
You can start from about $200-300 and bought student set of parts and get you
own robot running in a several days. Or, if you have enough money ( $1000- $1000,000),
you can bough robot dogs or other advanced machines.

But we prefer to create our own robots, because of price (in reality hand-made robots are not
always cheaper then factory produced), but rather because of different target of our project.

I am a Java server-side programmer. On a job we create serious enterprise scale applications,
using JSP/EJB/XML and it is difficult to explain to usual people what we are doing.


I like to use Java very much. I spent about 12 years to C/C++, but now I suppose,
that Java is much better. In my eyes it is the best language.


I have a son. He was 13 at that time, when we started. It was March 2004.


And I had an idea to teach my son my favorite language Java.
But how to start?

There was no so big interest to Java from my son.

Often I saw, that him sitting on his own PC and playing games.
I was not sure that it is the best way to spend the time.

And when I saw on TV pictures from Mars I said to myself ? why not to use J2ME Java in my
cell phone as a brain and embedded camera as a robot eye?
Also may be it is possible to use sound to communicate with the robot, etc.

And I decide to share my idea with my son. Fortunately, he was interested in this project
and we start to work.

Now we have some sub-projects. We tried a lot of things
hardware and software solutions and we will be happy to share our experience with another people,
who want to use Java as a brain for robots.
