i agree Karim. it's just that these guys spent many long hard hours creating this awesome robot and only 5 seconds to give it a name. 

here is what people see when they search for this robot...   Robby the Robot. everyone knows this robot very well. Robby is the most popular robot in the world. that's like opening a hamburger shop and calling it McDonald's.

we need a new name. i thought i was being smart when i thought of the name TOBOR. but it's taken as well.

the dprg robot has a V shape on his face to look thru. maybe his name should start with V. how about Victor, Vortex, Voltar, etc.

here is an article about naming robots. please read, quite interesting!

how about something with the D.P.R.G. acronym?
Diperg, Daprog, Dopergangler...   really? Dopergangler?

let's ask all the members to email their choice names. then we post them online and vote. whichever name has the most votes wins.

Nice video Ron. Robie is very impressive in person and I appreciate the work you all put into its creation. Naming rights belong to y'all.

For those who are interested in seeing Mini Maker Faire video including introduction of Big Robie, the 7 foot tall club logo robot, here is the link to DPRGclips youtube video    http://youtu.be/VjhLMYhk2P0

I did my best to edit the content down a bit so you don't have to suffer though too much video.  Still 16 minutes..
Leave some comments.  People need to feel appreciated or disliked or whatever. Ha!
(Also, comment if there are some inaccurate captions...)

Some of the content:

* DPRG Big Robie's Premiere
* John Kuhlenschmidt shows off 3D scanner and also had his demo present of  Johnny Lee's Wii remote head   tracking 3D graphics system.
* Jason Henriksen's demo of new CMU Cam  - 50 Frames per second blob tracker controlling camera pan and tilt
* 3D Printers including Poly Printer large format printer.
* Hans Nelson shows off Magnetic Ball Joint (super cool)  and his large delta printer in production.
* The Cow Goddess and her art car.
* Mini quadricopter demo
* special bonus, if you watch to the end - Goliath

Sorry about some of the excessive camera motion.  Some of the better video is probably Doug's.
I find it difficult to run a camera and talk to people at the same time.
Well, that is my excuse anyway.

Also, I know I missed out on interviewing several members.
