Halfway There!

TyroBot is now both halfway funded and halfway done with the campaign. Thanks to everyone for their support!

In the meantime, I have been perfecting TyroBot's walking algorithm, assembly, and durability. With the latest revision of parts (On Guthub and Thingiverse by the way) TyroBot walks smoother and can withstand drops of over 5 feet. The robot will not be harmed if he walks directly off of a table, as in accordance to the third law of robotics.

 TyroBot's assembly guide was also written and published on Instructables! Of course much more documentation is to come, but this will explain how to get started.

The next step is to fully document TyroBot's software libraries and write tutorials on all the different things you can do with TyroBot. Thanks to the IFTT network, TyroBot's internet capabilities are quite large!

We have 15 days left in the campaign and need a minimum of 15 new backers, so please share with anyone potentially interested in building robots!
