My name is Brad Baillod and I live in Calgary Alberta Canada. I, like you have been a big robot fan since I was a kid. I am now an electronic technologist and my hobby is building robots.
My mother in law told my about your web site and I have enjoyed looking at the various creatures in your collection. I thought I would send you a picture of a machine that I am working on. When it is completed ( in a couple of years) it will be an autonomous six legged insect like robot.
Here is Calgary there is a group called the Western Canadian Robot Society they organize every spring a competition for robots called the Western Canadian Robot games. Their web site is Robotgames.net.
Enjoyed your site, robotics is definitely a passion as well as a science.
