    Seeing as I live with two girls, I think purchasing this would be a bit too suspicious.

    A lot of people have been closet robot builders for the last 5 years. Now that the Web 2.0 cycle is finishing up, maybe it’ll start turning into jobs.

    Jobs… doing what you love… isn’t that what the Valley is all about?

    Paul… why would anyone be suspicious of you…? Something you haven’t told us?

    The Krawler robot looks pretty interesting. I inspect houses and am the co-inventer of the “Krawler” for a human to lay on to inspect under houses and other buildings. I would love to get my hands on the Krawler robot to see if it works!

    I am interested in how much this whole set up will cost me. What are the features?
