It is my pleasure to introduce you to our newest lab member… actually it doesn’t have a name yet, but that’s the main reason for this post. This cute little guy/girl needs a name. I have been toying with TERMINATOR, HAL, iRob, and Rob(ot), but I’m sure you can do better. Could be male, female, or gender-neutral and whoever comes up with the best name gets a special treat.
This is a high-end Scorbot, or at least it was high-end in the 90s but hasn’t been used in the last 7 years. I think it was a teaching robot but we’re going to see if we can get it to do some real work. It was donated by Mike Van der Loos from the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, who provided this link:
#ROBOT_NAME# is currently camping out in the corner of the lab until I can find a suitable spot. I was thinking of the table in BioSci once the field harvest and drying season is over. Please let me know if you have any better ideas.
