I would love to start a section on the POP-BOT since I am getting my kit this week!
I have heard both good
things about it and I was wondering if anyone is using it with the -0022 version of the Arduino software?
Does it work better? (I am running Windows 7 64 bit and had a Duemilanove board at one time that worked fine with -0022. I know the POP-BOT is based on the ATmega 168.)
Planning on going further, I also have a SparkFun USB ISP Pocket Programmer on order too and want to try alternative languages (C++, Basic, Pascal, Forth, etc.) Getting the little 'bot built and running with Arduino "sketches" will be the first thing I want to do. (I need to get the ISP programmer up and running smoothly with 64 bit Windows, which I am told can be fun...)
I am already interested in putting a better processor (primarily for more memory) and I have some ideas how that can be done, (but it won't be pretty!
My other interests for the little 'bot include advanced AI, neural networks, multitasking and more.
Anyway, AWESOME Forums, AWESOME Arduino and I am very happy to be here!
