Heathkit Partnership - 2007/12/14 23:49 This thread discusses the Content article: Heathkit Partnership

Wow! That is incredible news and totally unexpected. This can only be a good thing. There were so many innovative features in the old Hero that the 914 can only benefit from all of this.

Re:Heathkit Partnership - 2007/12/15 05:30 For anyone who doesn't know their robot history, check out:

I think Heathkit sold something like nearly 20,000 Hero's during the 80's, and that was of course before anything like the public internet or small commodity computers existed.

Also I beleive Tom Burick still owns a couple of Heathkit Heros...

Re:Heathkit Partnership - 2007/12/15 20:08 Some of it is old tech now, but for sure a lot of it was way ahead of its time and definately still applicable to the 914 today.

Re:Heathkit Partnership - 2007/12/30 09:41 Hopefully this will finally cause prices to drop below research dept and Google stockholder levels. I've been waiting a long time to own a 914, maybe my wait is almost at an end...
