I think it's terrific what DJ has achieved and really believe he'll make robots accessible to a bigger audience. What I do miss though is all of those great, hacked robots on the website. It's a little sad that they have been relegated to the back pages.
For me, the pure creativeness of solving all those problems when hacking a robot and bringing it back to life, better and badder than before, is what it's all about.
I'm chomping at the bit though, and can't wait to get my hands on the new board.
