I wanted to say hello from the development team. Robert Douglas and I, Brendan Ebers, have been working really hard this past month on the Gado codebase in preparation for sending out our first Gado 2 kits. It’s really exciting to see how far this project has come along, and we’d like to do a series of blog posts sharing some problems we encountered and techniques we learned along the way.
But first, I’m happy to announce that the newest codebase is now available over at GitHub. We had been developing on our internal Git server until we realized that our open source project wasn’t available to a wider audience. So if Python is your thing and you’re interested to see what makes this little robot tick, then go check out our code and play around. We’d love some pull requests (and we’d love some help with the GUI.)
In the next few days we’ll also be pushing our 3D models, finalized parts list, and all of the supporting documentation as well.
