It’s been gorgeous out in Seattle lately, so it would’ve been tough to stay in this weekend and work on the robot arm. But, for better or worse, I sprained my ankle at pickup yesterday, and had plenty of time to make some good progress. I’ve only found one minor (and fixable) error on the board so far, and the processors come up just fine. I haven’t tried running more than one at a time yet (to see if they program okay and/or share the I2C bus nicely), nor actually running motors in the arm, but I’m close to doing both. I’ll need to enlist Matt’s help soon in figuring out some math & programming, but it’s looking like there might be something ready to show at my birthday – sweet!
