Holiday Hours

This may come as a bit of a shock to you, but the hands that package your orders actually belong to humans. Sure, we may be a robot company, but robo-hands just aren't quite up to spec for what we need to do. So for the moment we're staffed by a contingent of mortals, and as us mortals tend to do, we want to spend the holidays with our families and take it easy. So we'll be closed for the following days:

Monday, December 26th
Tuesday, December 27th
Friday, December 30th
Monday, January 2nd

Also note that the order cutoff time for same-day shipping this Friday (the 23rd) will be at noon MST.

Standard procedure applies - because our website,  answering machines, and email address have no family or emotions, we're telling them to suck it up and work through the break. You can still place orders and leave messages, and we'll resume operations as normal when we're not closed.

That being said... We hope that all of you will have a fantastic winter holiday. We could write some mushy-gushy happy feel-good stuff, but let's face it. If you're at all like us, you've probably stopped reading by  this point and are already daydreaming about turkey stuffed with candy canes, precariously balanced at the top of a decorated tree. "Carving the turkey" immediately goes from "boring tradition" to "hilarious and exciting spectator sport". Especially if you use a snow shovel.

Anyways, from all of the team here at Solarbotics, we're so proud to have served you over the last year, and wish you all the best in 2012.

Wednesday Cool Links: Lotsa Arty Stuff

Ok, yes, we know. This is yet another late cool link post, but... We have a good excuse, honest! We just got in a second laser (from Full Spectrum), and we were distracted for most of yesterday getting it up and running. So enough excuses - here's this week's batch of links: PVC Instrument, DRS […]

Ringo - the great-grandson to the Photop...

We were pleased to see the Kickstarter for Ringo, the Photopopper-ish but much smarter version of our own ~17 year old design robot kit. The video showcases some pretty cool behaviors, and is easily one of those projects where we think "Jee, why didn't we do that?"

PICAXE Experimenter's Kit on sale!

Well, we're disappointed. Not a single one of you fell for our Pimp Your Sumo April Fool's joke.  Which is too bad, really, because we were actually ready to send them out to anyone that wanted one. Oh well, too late now! But don't fret if you missed out - we have a special treat […]
