I think there really is only one thing robot builders "need" to build
robots.  They need a reason.   Given enough reason all other resources
will follow.

Fun is a good reason, a challenge, a goal to strive for is even better.   

DPRG is the *reason* why many of these robots exisit!

Want more robots?  Give more reasons to build them.
