Despite being a roboticist and a trained mechanical engineer, I...
...am afraid of circuits.
THERE. I SAID IT. HAPPY NOW?!
But that fear ends now. NOW, I SAY.
Now that Johnny-Five has come out and my husband now has 3 (three!) Arduinos, there's really no reason not to at least dig in, hack around, and slowly overcome my fear of the magic smoke.
Watch this space, as I'm pretty pumped about sharing whatever awesomeness I come up with here!
(FYI: I'm starting with the Johnny-Five series on the Bocoup blog, starring Rick Waldron and Rebecca Murphey. I highly recommend it!)
