J2R Scientific is focused on 4 major area of robotics for Education, Home Assistance/ Medical Care Assistance, Security and Autism/Special Needs.
You can follow my research progress and any special project I am working on from Twitter @JustinRatliff as I tweet about projects, research and robotics news.
When you purchase a robot or product from J2R Scientific it is hand crafted or assembled at the time of the order. I consider each robot we make to be a unique custom robot. Any ideas you would like to incorporate into your robot I would be happy to help you with. I also maintain the ability to offer larger scale production runs of robots or kits if your are looking to purchase items in larger quantity.
J2R Scientific is owned and operated by Justin R. Ratliff. I am the President of The Robotics Club of Yahoo. I have been a robotic enthusiast and robot builder since age 5. I hold several IT certifications. I have over 10 years of manufacturing development and prototyping experience. And I have over 20 years of combined amateur and professional robot building knowledge. I also currently work for a large Heath Insurance company in their enterprise wide Technology Support department.
Learning is a life long passion for me and besides robotics I am drawn towards the subjects of artificial intelligence, how the human mind works, as well as history.

TRCY discussed and listed as one of the best Internet based robotics club in SERVO magazine June 2004
TRCY discussed and listed in Gordon McComb’s bestseller “Robot Builder’s Bonanza: 2nd Edition”.
Published Interview in the Cincinnati Post 5/26/2000 with discussion on “Making Robots a Reality.”
Developed the autonomous fighting robot contest for TRCY in 1999, which is possibly the first autonomous fighting robot contest.
Developed, marketed and produced a small customizable robot kit called TRaCY. TRaCY was developed jointly with engineers from OptoTronics and Hewlett-Packard, along with support from Parallax, Inc. This small robot was easily programmable with a PC. Could run autonomously once programmed. Was designed as a first robot for beginners to the hobby. Buyers of the TRaCY ranged from 14-year-olds in Iowa, to NASA JPL engineers who used the robot in a youth outreach program, to a Professor at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies. The TRaCY robot kit was exported to Canada, The UK, Germany, Turkey and New Zealand. http://members.tripod.com/RoBoJRR/tracy.htm
