Wow, it appears that I have not updated my blog since Feb 2019. At that time, life was great, brainpower was at a high, ideas were flowing and world domination (Burf Style) was near (Nope this isn’t a Brexit rant). Then life got turned upside down, and I had to deal (well try and deal) with a great crisis in my life, my wife sadly no longer wanted to be with me. 2019 was a horrible horrible year and so I didn’t really build anything, I shut down my sites, projects, and hobbies and just tried to deal with what was going on at home.
Long road ahead
So, I would love to write there was a happy ending to 2019 but these things take years especially when kids are involved and the process has just started however you just can’t keep my crazy brain down for too long! So while I was aimlessly surfing eBay for random things, I came across this for sale!
Seeing an Inmoov robot for sell on eBay is rare as rocking horse poo, it takes people years to print these (4 years for this one) and are usually attached to a college, university or something. This one needed some work but I thought what a perfect project for me to sink my efforts in to! My dad agreed and purchased it as my Christmas present (Thanks dad).
The Inmoov robot project is one of the most amazing 3D projects out there, it allows someone with a lot of time (and some money to buy servos), to print a fully functional top half of a robot, to buy the same sort of thing would cost you hundreds of thousands of pounds. I have printed a few parts of it before to merge with educational products like LEGO and VEX however, I always run out of steam (Time) while actually attempting to print the whole thing. Buying a mostly built one means I can fix a bit at a time.
So this year’s focus is to complete this while learning more about robotics, engineering, and electronics:) I will try and do a YouTube series on my progress and I will still try to think of crazy ways to try and make Burf.co a better search engine.
Watch this space 🙂
