Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. MOSnet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 10pm. Eastern time, April 17th. Tonight, Saturday 4/17/2010 – 10pm ET – “Ask an Engineer” – Adafruit’s weekly LIVE video chat! What is “Ask an engineer”? From the electronics enthusiast to the professional community – “Ask an Engineer” has a little bit of everything for everyone. If you’re a beginner, or an seasoned engineer – stop in and see what we’re up to! We have demos of projects and products we’re working on, we answer you engineering and electronics questions and we have a trivia question + give away each week. To see previous chat event videos, please visit the forums.

Tonight we have a nice GIVEAWAY! An iRobot Create (R) programmable robot!

Create is an affordable mobile robot platform for educators, students and developers – use it to experiment, learn and play! Here’s just the beginning of the fun you can have with Create…

-Learn the fundamentals of robotics, computer science and engineering
-Program behaviors, sounds and movements
-Attach sensors, electronics, cameras, grippers and more

Create is preassembled and ready to use right out of the box. Beginners can observe the robot’s behavior in any of the 10 demonstration modes or program the robot by downloading scripts with any basic terminal program. Advanced users can write custom software using a variety of methods that take advantage of the robot’s “streaming sensor data” mode for more control of the robot. And highly advanced users can write programs for completely autonomous behavior.

EXCELLENT As an Engineer. I had company on Saturday night and being able to watch a replay is a definite plus! I don't understand half of the things talked about, but it gives me new ideas every week. Keep up the great work!

?? I don't understand - Didn't you all gather around the computer and watch the chat live?

(Yes, I've done that when I was "company" at someone else's house. :mrgreen:)
