Meet the newest member of MY family–though I’m sure he’ll be spending plenty time grooving in the Bowdoin Lab.

This is a iDog. I will not program it to play Soccer.

On the development side, I’ve spent a couple of hours in the past few days getting to know the vision system–and I now actually understand the new techniques we use as well as the old compression we use for AiboConnect.

The only issue is getting me and Yi Zhuang, our vision guru, on the same page: China to Maryland via email discussing code that is stored at Bowdoin–tricky! Thankfully we have Subversion.
