Hello everyone:) so i have begun building my full size astromech droid! I know that this project is going to take a long time but I feel it will be worth it in the end. My droid will be built from styrene and 3d printed parts. The dome is actually a security mirror but requires a 2" riser made from a floral craft ring and styrene cover.

I used to manage a group of new college graduates in the Oil and Gas industry. These were all programmers. I used to chuckle around Christmas, April and Summer when these students realized that this times that they became accustom to being off were gone forever.

Seriously though, Congrats on your achievement. It is a huge one in your life.

@CochranRobotics Thank you its going to be a huge change:)

I've had several interviews already. One at Motiv Space Systems and just recently with Textron Specialty Vehicles. Luckily though I have been working in industry for 3 years so the transition shouldn't be so bad! haha

Congratulations! ! You're a talented guy. You'll be just fine and go as far as your imagination and drive will take you.

Love your last video. Can't believe I missed it. Very smooth rotation and nice speed ramping. I almost fell off the chair when he farted, er, I mean vented. :P

Hey guys,

This project is not ez-robot powered yet but once I get control of how all the dynamics of the drive system and balancing work i will be making a phone app and installing a ezb.

I have been working on this for about 3 months and it weighs 32 pounds



happy building

Wow, That's a clean build Aaron, nice work! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing you convert it over and make an iPhone app for it:)

Had a blast at the Long Beach Comic Con. Everyone loved the droids and many of the other builders in the club are starting to realize the potential of ez-robot for their droids!

I also was part of a panel on sunday talking about robotics and how to get involved! ez-robot came up many times in my discussion

Outstanding BB-8, that is definitely tricky to get going. Keeping it real in SoCal, I miss SoCal
