A man from a upcoming crowdfunding website called ScitechStarter wrote a comment saying its a shame I haven't received as many funds as this project deserves. He wants me to post my project on his website. I viewed his profile and it turns out he's written 178 comments so there is high probability that the message he sent me was one that he copy and pasted to 178 other people. Regardless, I posted my project on ScitechStarter. Why not.
The welder sent me a message saying that his company Checker Machine Inc is all for my project and is offering welding, machining, and possibly engineering support for the project. Another company behind the project is always good news.
I am going "dumpster diving" with the welder tomorrow to see if we can salvage any aluminum for the robot. And then this next week or so, we should order the parts. Things should start getting interesting then.
