So, I'm cleaning, and listening to ancient episodes of the MAKE podcast. One was about whitebox robotics. another about building your own r2d2. I was pondering the insanity of buying one of the whitebox units, then thought "hey, I've /got/ an RB5X. Maybe I should sell it. I wonder what they go for on ebay". Did a search on ebay, and one on google.
They're still selling them. I have a $5600 robot (base unit plus arm) sitting idle in my guest room, as it turns out.
I /really/ need to repair it (it suffered some frame damage during shipment from Kansas) and get it up and running again.
