    Mirobot is a very cool open source robotics kit that’s completely open source and very affordable.  When I was contacted by Ben Pirt, the man behind this project, I was admittedly a little skeptical about yet another robotics system.  However, this robotics kit seems very nice and sports some very […]

    Last week, I received no less than 6 of the Bricktronics Breakout Boards from Wayne & Layne LLC.  If you think that name sounds familiar, you’re right, they’re the authors of the “Make Lego and Arduino Projects” book.  These adapters would definitely be indispensable if you’re planning to do any […]

    There’s a new release version of ROBOTC out now.  No longer just a beta, this one’s for real!  There are so many changes since the last release, 3.54, you’d have to be crazy not to update!  I’ve been testing the in-between releases like mad, 3.56, 359 and some builds in […]

    The fine folks at Robomattter have released a new beta.  Now, I don’t think it should be called a beta, but I’m sure they have their reasons for that.  It fixes quite a number of issues that were reported in 3.54 and 3.55.2.  Thankfully, most, if not all of those […]

    When I was contacted a little while ago by Ken Burns of the TinyDuino project, I thought: “Oh here we go, another Arduino clone project.”  However, when I checked out the Kickstarter project I quickly went from “meh” to “WOW”. The TinyDuino is, well, tiny and by tiny, I mean […]
