Gordon McComb











TAB author Gordon McComb has been busy building robots since the 1970s. And when he’s not building robots, he’s writing about them.

The author of the bestselling TAB book Robot Builder’s Bonanza (now in its 4th Edition), Gordon was recently featured in the “Meet the Makers” column in MAKE Magazine (Volume 27), where he discusses his background and interest in robotics.  Here’s a snippet…

Make: How did you become interested in robotics?
Gordon McComb:  I think it was because I wanted to be a mad scientist. (Editor’s note: How awesome is that!)
