Hi everyone,

I'm new to the site but long time techy.
Android, electronics and robotics is my main game.
Got a great opportunity to be lead robot programmer on a KR60 (Kuka) robot arm recently so that's awesome.

Have a few products in the mill which I'm looking forward to commercializing soon and in reflection of the difficulties I faced on my journey I decided to provide a cheap prototyping service to help accelerate other NZer prototyping paths. Electronics especially can be daunting and expensive for a startup so flick me a message on my site if you've got a great idea you want to make.

Cya around ;)

People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally as everyone here knows we should always attack arguments not the people behind them. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time you will see there are lots of people who post around the forums in a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.
