ROS News This Week

Hi Everyone,

This week I tried something a bit different. As I was moderating ROS Discourse and Twitter accounts I kept a running markdown file of all of the interesting robotics related stuff I saw. I don’t have time to thoroughly review and write about everything, but I figured that at least summarizing the week would be helpful for the community.

Feel free to post your own finds in the comments below and engage in shameless self promotion of your projects. :robot:

Repping my PickNik shirt from @mlautman, gave me the shirt right off his back. What a guy.

Edit: I’m really hoping this doesn’t reappear anywhere in the future…
