48 Hours and Miles to Go!

We noticed yesterday, that Kickstarter starts the countdown to the end of a project in hours near the final days.  Maybe it makes it seems like there is more time?  Or less time?  Seems kinda subjective.   

Here we are at the 48 hour mark, and we aren't even half-way to our goal.  Being realistic here, unless a miracle happens, and somehow there is some major tech blog gives us viral traction, or some white knight steps in and tops the project off, we will probably not make it by the deadline.  With that said, there still is some time to get your friends to make a pledge.  Of the 100+ supporters we have currently, if each of you could find 3 to 4 more people each, we would be there in no-time!  It has certainly been done before.  If the Pebble Watch can raise $1 million in 24 hours, we could certainly find $40k in 48 hours.

For your enjoyment, and viewing pleasure, we made another quick video of our in-house TurtleBot named Wilma, which runs ROS, of course, doing some synchronized driving with an Oddwerx robot, using a PS3 remote.  Two robots, same messages going to both, equals do the same thing.

We sure have had lots of fun creating the project, and coming up with interesting things to make the Oddwerx do.  Lets see what the next 48 hours brings!

Thanks again for everyone's continued support, and all of you who have pledged who want to see the Oddwerx become a reality!
