Okay last thread for awhile, I promise. I was just wondering, what would be some ideas for having a work shed in the backyard? Just something small and simple for working on robotics projects in.

I was thinking of setting up one of those stand-in tents, but that would kill the grass, plus it's tornado season here in Tennessee, so just one good day of straight-line winds, and that tent will either be half way across the cotton field, or have a branch sticking out of it.

Or maybe I don't even need any kind of shack, really. It's just gonna take up space and get infested with wasps and spiders. Maybe all I need is a workbench or something.
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Dont ever stop! From how to find an orgy, to how to live in Israel, to a work space, we love it all!

If you are serious about it, youtube "do it yourself worksheds" and dick around; and I guarantee you'll find something you like that would be cheap and feasible to build.

However I am more interested in your 'robotics projects'.
Cool and interesting.
Tell us more please?

Well...I mean, I'm learning Python.
But I don't know what exactly to use my Python skills for other than hobby things, right now. Which is FINE! Dicking around with a programming hobby is exactly how one builds their resume and portfolio with coding.

But, I'm really starting to wonder, what exactly can I use it for? Cybersecurity, yes. Knowing how to code is but one, and only one, of the many skills needed for, cybersecurity work.

But, considering that for all WE know, civilization is on a downward spiral, I'm just trying to brainstorm ways in which I can apply programming to more physical, real world applications.

I used to have a fascination with robotics. Particularly drones.

Land drones, air drones (the most common type), and water drones.

They could be used for deep sea exploration, searching for things at the bottom of a lake, chasing tornadoes, transporting lightweight goods and medical supplies, espionage, scouting terrain, and so much more. At least in theory.

On top of that, there are small robots that kids learn how to code with that can move blocks around (just look up LEGO Mindstorm), imagine if you could scale it up.

As a matter as fact, someone has already managed to create a sort of autonomous tractor:



And you know, I'm just sitting at home, coding, and I've got all this money I don't know what to do with...Why not invest it in gold-I mean invest it into developing some skills with robotics?

Programming is amazing, and I could make a career off of coding with Python alone, but I don't want to be a one-trick pony, and coding is just a tool for many things. I also want some electrical experience and knowledge with computer devices and different operating systems.

So idk, I might get an Arduino kit or a Raspberry Pi kit. I just need some space to work on these things with.

Well, there goes the "farmers tan".

This is fascinating technology, it's already in place in some other industries, mostly mining.

Judging by some YouTube comments, not everyone is happy about it, but it's either this, a bunch of millenials and zoomers decide to become farmers, the U.S. lets farmers from other countries like India live here as U.S. citizens with their own land in exchange for growing food, or we're just gonna have a crops shortage here in the U.S.

Or big business can take over farming! I'm sure Amazon would love to sink their tendrils into that!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
