Welcome to the Home Page of David Buckley.
I have been producing robots and animatronic systems for over a quarter century and building robots for much longer, here are some details about me, some of the projects I have been involved in, and robots I have built. For reports on past robot meetings see www.robotsystems.net.
All new robots are of course photographed digitally, but I have a great number of slides and prints of my robots and others at various exhibitions including The First Personal Robot Exposition and Congress held in Albuquerque in 1984 (be part of the beginning) which I have started to scan and put on the site.
Scattered amongst the pages here are some which have to me notable content. Here are the links.
Some of my robots do not yet have pages, please come back.
