[Nurgak] shows how one can use some of the great robotic tools out there to simulate a robot before you even build it. To drive this point home he builds the tutorial off of the easily 3D printable and buildable Robopoly platform. The robot runs on Robot Operating System at its core. ROS is interesting because of its decentralized and input/output agnostic messaging system.
