Yes, I'll be skipping this weekends meeting to go to RoboGames. The
weekend after I should be there though, and I can bring the choker that
I have. If you're interested in building the armatures (the physical

can make some good progress together. I can teach you the electronics
stuff - it's really not that hard. Easier in fact than knowing how to
work a sewing machine :-)
