Venator Robotics is 5 years old!
Last month was the fifth anniversary of Venator Robotics!
It's been 5 years since I made the decision to embark on my lifelong dream of building a combat robot, and I'm so thankful for the experiences I've had during this time. I remember in early 2015, I spent months weighing up the pros and cons of engaging in this hobby, which was set firmly in an unfamiliar landscape. This door into engineering, design and handiwork was not only completely out of my comfort zone, but also locked behind a significant financial pledge. I can say now though, with absolute confidence, that building Venator was the best decision I've made in my life, and if I'd been told back then where this hobby would've led me, I'd never believe it. The exciting part is there's so much more for me to learn and experience as I build more machines.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the roboteers who have helped me over the years. I've made so many great friends in this community, it's hard to imagine my life without them.
I suppose this is a message to anyone undecided on committing to a longtime ambition or goal:
JUST GO FOR IT!
You never know where it will lead.
Here's to 5 more years!
