This blog is about my life and the role that robotics has in it.
I don't know if such story is interesting for someone out there, and I guess that the english will be very poor. But whatever you read in these pages is just the truth.
My name is Davide Faconti, and I am 29 years old. I am the project leader of the humanoid robot project "REEM".
I recently realized that maybe it worth to tell someone my story. OK, may me it is NOT... but still, I guess I will enjoy it.
I spent the last years working in robotics and I guess that I will do this the rest of my life. My dream is to give a contribution to robotics, and I hope that my work will eventually change the way we live... do you think it is silly?
May be it is, and you can laugh at it, but would you laugh at a person that spend is life practicing a sport and dreaming about become a world champion at the Olympic Games? Is there any difference at all?
This blogs run in parallel two stories.
The first of them starts today (1st of May 2008) and it is a summary of what happen in the "REEM lab". Me and the other team members are a bunch of crazy people and we have often a good time working together. I want to share it.
The second story started in 2001 and tells you how I become the leader of one of the most advanced humanoid robots projects out there. There are so many coincidences and "butterfly effects" that you will believe that it is fiction sometimes... but it isn't.
I hope you will have some fun.
