I am having a crisis. But it's a good one. As I build more on MARVIN, I keep getting ideas. Really good ideas. I mean really, really good ideas. They are good because they are relatively easy to accomplish, but my idea count is well over thirty and counting. Most of them are actions that I can make him do. The hardware is there, or will be there soon.
Every day I think of at least one new idea. I'm not even trying, but I see something happen during the day, or I see a cool robot video and say to myself "I bet I can make MARVIN do that." So I put a little thought into it and I am usually right. Some are very simple and would take just a few minutes to program; some are more elaborate and require some hardware and software improvement. But most of them can be done fairly easily.
I really wish that there was someone near me with programming experience and a several hours a week to work with me. I just don't have enough time to do it all. I am at the point where I might call the local high school and see if there is a computer club or someone to help.
