Over the coming few days I will post some interesting posts about the usual data which I hope you find useful. Currently here at Trash Robot the blog posts have been very broad covering lots of different topics, and facilitating and giving a platform in which video makers and photographers can display there work related to robots, recycling and waste management, these posts are not limited to location either, if you are one of these people please join the forum and check out other peoples work, its great for more ideas and I am sure all this creativity is keeping you busy and you are developing some new skills. With that said this post is just a heads up to explain about future posts and explain a little bit more about where Trash Robot is going, how is it all going and where it could possibly go with your help. Firstly I would just like to introduce the fact that many people in the world right now are taking robotics very seriously, and the industry of robotics is set to provide a steady income for many people across the globe. Manufacturers and stores are creating parts not just for Robot toys but for industrial helper robots. Factories that have closed down will soon be replaced by these new factories, this is good because in the future there will be old jobs replaced with new jobs so people can pay there rent, feed their kids and use the skills that engineering colleges are teaching. You just have to ask around to current graduates to find out this is true. Many guy’s are studying AI, Robotics, cryptography and whole load more new terminology’s. These skills people are learning may not yet be clear as what they will be doing, however they will be hoping that robots happen. Trash Robot with this in mind is a plausible idea, and I know some of you may be doubting owning a trash Robot to do the recycling for you around the home the same was said about the microwave until the price dropped to a price everyone could afford. But when the Microwave and CD players were released there was a massive rush to the shops to buy. Already in the past two years Robots on Amazon have rocked, parents are reliving the nostalgia of there own childhood’s by buying robots. So why are we not yet accustomed to having robots around the home? I have alway’s thought perhap’s we are but statistically these ideas are not yet being manufactured, patented or offered any serious funding. Trash Robot hopes to change this and I personally am currently studying how to strike or a manifesto proposal and putting the word out to technically advanced designers to consider the variables. I will mention a few here but first let me tell you about the future posts as promised. In the morning I will have finished a post about plastic recycling, there is a video which you may or may not have seen before, I also have some helpful links for you you to learn a few things, the day after this i have a light hearted post to come with some lovely images I have found from Flicker, with this will be a announcement about the new film Tron. At a later date you will find some interesting developments in and throughout all this I am trying to generate participation here on Trash Robot. If you join the forum you can join groups by clicking the groups button above, you can contact us there.
So back to the manifesto, well a business proposal is by no means easy especially since there has not been much activity in the forum this month, I created three or four groups in which you can join, infact you can even create your own group, but I do not expect any handouts from my readers as far as business proposals go. If you have joined via Twitter and are wondering how to subscribe via the autoresponder which is free by the way and I have a helpful PDF on how to use it if you wish to use yourself. But here’s the skinny, when you optin the only downfall with the autoresponder is you have to go through one time optin, if you do not find any of the lists helpful to what you need do not tick any of the boxes there these are simply the way the auto-responder justifies being free, simply scroll down and click the no button after confirming your e-mail address. After clicking no go back into your e-mail and there should be a secondary confirmation ( a hassle I know) and confirm again. It has a secondary confirmation. From there you will be able to receive a newsletter which I have been making for quite some time, I will keep you upto date with tips about Robotics, recycling and waste and as and when I find out more information about striking up a business proposal I will give you tips on that too. You could say not only am I providing a free service I am also willing to share as much wisdom as possible to leverage the message entwined within the Trash Robot manifesto. I’ve already seen people out dressed as Robots with cardboard boxes and plastic cup eyes, I know you guy’s are really interested in Robots. As and when Robots become appliances I believe then everyone will find Robots appealing but at the moment it is all just science fiction and Japanese tamagochi. If you are looking for parts to make this Robot yourself Japan is already stocking parts for new toy robots and the video’s on Youtube are very good, so what I have done is created a little list on Google Maps which I am sure if you Google firstname.lastname@example.org you will find the locations, I hope to expand on these more over the coming weeks so look out for that. If you optin or join the forum I will at some point explain the benefits of doing such a thing. Finally if you are a developer from the Buddy Press forum and have some tips on what I have done here please leave a comment below, I am very interested in what is happening with the future of this amazing WordPress platform. I have noticed the link to upgrade the template with a popular already adapted template but am holding back to read more in the forums and find out what all the talks about developing a members site, and also ready to adjust some settings to make certain posts a secret only for members who optin at the forum participate and earn a bit of Robot street cred.
