This is a perfect example of what will be to come with my new Blog and a great first post.
The Personal Robot 2, or PR2, is a completely Open Source robot aimed at educational and open source growth in advanced robotics for software developers. The PR2 is a spin-off from the original PR1 from Stanford University. In 2006, early Google developer, Scott Hassan (also eGroups Founder / Yahoo Groups), began Willow Garage, in an effort to promote wide-scale personal open source robotics. Check out the PR2 overview, or look further below to see the PR2 fetch a beer for their developers.
The developers at Willow Garage take time out to do one week hackathons, where an entire week is dedicated to accomplishing a certain task. Here is a hackathon of them programming the PR2 to fetch beer for the developers.
