Hola y bienvenido al Equipo BHP

The first thing that caught my eye is your nick name and I guess you are a Prancing Horse fan too. Great to have you on board. Since you like wildlife, I'm sure you have a great pictures collection which you can share with us. Do take time to stop by the Rules section to understand the forum etiquettes. Looking forward to your contributions.

Mods, I thought there were strict rules against "HINGLISH" and "TRANSLITERATION"..... BTW, is this Spanish or Italian (I though Ferrari was a Italian thoroughbred!)?

Welcome to the club, prancing horse!

A Palio owner, looking for a SUV - now what SUV would that be?

And, at 26, bitten by the entrepreneurial bug!! All the best.. I am all ears (do I have to say eyes?) about your progress (Kovai is one of the places which has fostered the entrepreneurial spirit and I am sure you will meet success in your venture....)

Yeah i have heard the same about the "entrepreneurial bug" from others, CBe has taken a toll from that bug & i may not be the latest victim. Thanks for your wishes budd.

Hey Prancing Horse

Welcome to Team-BHP.

Its nice to see someone with similar interests.
I'm currently doing Mechanical Engineering and love Robotics.
I participate in every technical event I can get into.
I am currently trying to build a wireless bot, but being new to electronics is proving to be stressful (various components etc.). It'll be great if you can suggest me some books or sites.

Have a nice stay, looking forward to learn something new.

sure,there are loads of off the shelf boards available for a starter.Are you more into singularity design for the kinematics or towards control system design part? What ever you are and if you are a starter,i would recommend Lego's NXT series kits,its seriously worth every penny.Now a days its much better,since it has very good support from Microsoft Robotics Studio, LabVIEW etc.Later you can graduate to other larger platforms

"Drivers come and go.Its the machine that makes the difference and stay longer in the history". Some one better whisper this in shumi's ears
