Use this space to cheer the creator along, ask questions, and talk to your fellow backers. Please remember to be respectful and considerate. Thanks!
Cool! It is in major part an open project - not only for playing with the rover, but also developing it. All the best from the Alps - we are just running a simulated Mars mission with international teams.
Fantastic project - good luck with pulling this together!
I'll try to spread info about this project to the several thousand FIRST Robotics teams here in the US and around the world. FIRST Robotics students would learn a lot by operating the rover remotely. Some might also want to learn or help with technical aspects of the project.
Great project. Copernicus would be proud!
Thank you! This is one of the ideas behind this project.
This could easily be used by educational programs, and is generally a low-cost way to help inspire future scientists that math, science, and imagination can lead to some pretty amazing things. Best of luck to you!
