The Editor’s Bench is where you will find information on all the projects that are currently underway on my robot workbench. This is not just a section for me... I’d like to hear from our readers about anything they might like to add to the ongoing projects.

If something strikes you... please email me at projects@botmag.com with what you think. I look forward to hearing from you! —Jeff
