I may have been coming across as too harsh or dismissive, as I agree
with you both that the demonstration would be worthwhile, and that
lots of value could be gleaned from the exercise Nathan described.

My only current problem is that there is no way that I can commit to
the volume of work that it would take to create this demonstration.

Nathan, do you currently possess the ability and resources to create
the types of robots and software you described? If so, I could try to
contribute in areas where I see I am able to do so, and my time
permitting. I can see how remote control of robotics is useful. I can
also see how a robot that can fold could do other tasks, too.
