Model Storage Robot Part 1: Big Picture, Big Plans

For some time now, I've accumulated several libraries and technologies on my list of things to try out. Someday. Whenever I can find the time. Which is probably - well, someday never comes. So I decided to make up my own "fun" project and stuff many of the things I wanted to try out into it.
