     I think it's time to face the facts. Sunfish is dead. I am no longer in the process of building an ROV. My university research has expanded to consume nearly all of my life and has pushed out all side projects. There are only so many hours in a day and I turned off the back burner a long time ago. Goodbye Sunfish.
     My main project at work is Rocky. Rocky is a robotic ground vehicle designed to provide omni-directional movement on (moderately) rough terrain. It works similar to a ball-bot, in that it sits atop spherical ball-wheels that are driven from above by multiple omni-wheels. However, since we don't want to have balance dynamically, we have three ball wheels. I've been designing this robot for the past six months or so and now I'm in the manufacturing and assembly phase. I'm spending a lot of time in the machine shop. So far this week:


     Much more to come in the near future.
