Fun with ROBOTC for Arduino

imageAmong all of the cool presents I got for Christmas this year were two new shields for my Arduino. I got a L298N Shield and a DFRobot LCD Keypad Shield. I wanted some new shields so I could write drivers for the Arduino port of ROBOTC.

I found the original C++ driver for the LCD shield and quickly ported it to ROBOTC.  It didn’t take long and I found some nice bugs in the alpha build as well.  Hopefully those will be fixed soon.  I guess if I didn’t find any bugs, it wouldn’t have been an alpha trial. I made a short video you watch below.
