Building Battle Bots and Rockets in New Jersey

Have you ever wanted to build your own battle robot or electronics but don’t have the tools? If so, you want to check out this interview with Rick Anderson one of the founders of FUBAR labs in New Jersey. New Jersey’s FIRST hackerspace.

Rick’s main project right now is Fubarino…a ChipKit compatibleĀ pic32 board he’s going to manufacture through SEEED Studio. He designs the board and sets the pricing, they build and ship. A great way for designers to build a business WITHOUT building their products themselves.

And what is he going to do with his chip? How about power a fighting robot. We also talk about all the other cool projects the members are working on, including a rocket that turned out to be WAY more powerful than the inventor anticipated.
