First off, an introduction

So... my first blog. How exciting! :D

My name is Roberto, a MSEE graduate of the University of South Florida (Go Bulls!), a BSEE graduate from Gonzaga University (Go Zags!), and a citizen of Peru (Go Peru!). Not many years ago, when I arrived to the U.S. of A., I started developing a passion for hobby electronics and robotics, and Macintosh computers.

This blog,, is intended to be an outlet for:
  • strategies and tutorials to use your Macintosh in electronic and robotic design
  • developments in Macintosh technology that are relevant to robotics
  • leveraging the collective knowledge of members/posters to improve the Mac as a design platform
  • adopting open source in OS X, with the help of seasoned Unix users.
Welcome all!

This picture here Junkyard Mac, the blog's "mascot". It is a G4 iMac, since it is one of my favorite form factors that has come from Apple. He wears soldering goggles because he is ready to hack.
