  • I know it sounds simple, but a well thought out power-up routine that checks all sensors and returns actuators to a safe condition is critical. I often see electro-mech devices that require manual manipulation after a failure, better to let the machine fix itself then us clumsy humans. BTW, I recommend reading any books by Henry Petroski, for insights on engineering failures and their root causes.

  • Just to tag in with my own $0.02. Couldn’t you interpret Barbie’s exchange as the author’s encouragement of collaborative work? It doesn’t make a difference which combination of male and female, three people working on a project is much more efficient. BTW Logic is gender neutral, but understanding the genders is not logical. :)

No public wish lists :(
