Design and build a Raspberry Pi robot - draft document

When I first showed my Raspberry Pi based "Ruby Robot" at the Raspberry Jam at Pycon UK, I promised a guide would be forthcoming. I've now finished the first draft of my guide to creating the robot.

Ruby Robot - Raspberry Pi powered robot vehicle based on Magician Robot

The guide does more than just take the reader through the steps to create a robot. It also covers the design process involved in creating the design and some of the decisions I went through in creating the robot.

eBook - Desgin and build a Raspberry Pi robot

The robot is just the starting point to create an initial working version. I have several ideas for new features and improvements to the robot, but the idea is for the reader to have their own ideas and turn it into a truly personal robot.

At the moment the guide is a draft pdf document. I intend to publish this as a free eBook in future (including putting it on the Raspberry Pi store). As this will be made available free of charge I don't have a budget for technical reviewers or proof-readers, but would very much appreciate feedback on the guide if anyone finds any mistakes.
