@AverageMarcus they’re pics from Gordon. Hoping to meet him this week so we can get an order put together. Those boards have 4 light sensors to do line following, but Gordon’s hoping to replace those with optical sensors. Looks like a nice (relatively) straightforward process to build up so there’s more time for hacking software, but they’re pretty modifiable. If we get the attendees to put them together they can swap out sensors, etc. too. The advantage of the larger chassis is that you could mount a breadboard on it so it’s easier to hack with.

They look awesome!
Have you had any luck with sponsorship? I've not made much progress here at work

Unfortunately not – I was maxed out with work last week and only arrived back in the UK last night, albeit less stressed :)

@spikeheap @peterjwest - here are my kind of crap notes - https://gist.github.com/benfoxall/9a06a699d97ad1c05fc5 - that was really good; agendas, actions & hats (everyone, we've been organising; everything is under control kind of).
