    If you’re keen to do ANSI C programming on your EV3 but are not a big fan of using Emacs, Eclipse or vi, then this may just be the thing for you.  It’s a .Net based IDE, running on Windows, that uses the standard gcc toolkit for the EV3’s ARM9 […]

    There’s a new release of ROBOTC available for all platforms, version 4.25, the “Blood, Sweat and Tears” edition!  Well, the official name is “Preview Release”, but I think my name is more accurate.  A lot of work into making this release.  So without further ado, let’s have a look at […]

    New: Mindsensors LineLeader v2

    Sensors July 9, 2014 17:29 no comments
