Axon Series: What is this thing?
When you order the Axon II, you get the Axon II, a USB to
mini-usb cable, and a switch with terminal pins connected on
it.(a Society of Robots card, too!  ;D )
I downloaded Webbot library, (have not checked it out yet), :'(
then downloaded the USB connectivity software, the CP210v
USB to UART Bridge Virtual Com Port software. U2 and U0 are on
the upper left corner, three prong pins, while the mini-USB is
on the lower right of the board.
The instructions indicate to download a bootloader.  Found out the
bootloader is for the Axon Mote, not the Axon II.(?) :-\

 8) Cool!   8)
a motor using a pulley method, wound around a tapered shaft, that
creates the displacement necessary to give a movement in the
direction of the shaft.
The tapered shaft device is also used as an autotransmission function,
which can speed up or slowdown an output. Basically, a
different "gear" ratio. Very interesting to see it explained. I know we
will see different versions of it; that will be shocking!  :o
Axon Series: What is this thing?
I was looking for a way to power the Axon II board, and the specs in the
tutorial say 5.35 Volts is minimal, and if it drops below, the MCU resets.
So, I either get a battery, (which I will have to get anyway), or get a
12 volt power supply and attach a regulator to get 6 volts.  ;)
On the board;  8)
Each pin on the I/O bus from the Axon can not supply more that .020 amps, or
20 miliamps to drive a load. The 3.3 Voltage pin on the board can not
deliver more that .073 amps, or 73 milliamps. Since I will be programming
most of the time, I will just make a dedicated box (from Harbor Frieght)
to house the power supply and the Axon II board, plus any boards that
I may need in the future (Axon Mote). Makes things tidy and simple. ;D

Backdrivable Cyclone Rope Piston:

How it Works:

I'm posting this because I thought this group might be interested in the work going on at Rise Robotics.

How about if you have a pet robo???
Meet the multi-talented Humanoid Robot- AIHRO...!!!
Do Watch and share  :)

 8) Good idea, Schlayer!
The one I find most interesting is the Sprout, in which the body and
motors seem the most versatile, and the most affordable.
They would make a great Droid army!   ;D ;D

I kinda want to make a 'hive-mind' wireless-communication-robot swarm with these since it would be so much easier than building each bot myself... If only I had the time and budget for it  :-\

Axon Series: What is this thing?
I tried to build one device file, and found, that when writing a more complex
program, the memory may be used up quickly. I am glad there is 64 K of memory.
The price of the nice GUI platform may be memory. In that case, in more complex
programs, will have to push down more commands into assembly, to save memory.
Alot of support files are used; not sure how much memory that takes, if any.  :-\

Axon series: What is this thing?
When programming, you must have AVR Studio 4 software. This software lets you
program the Axon, and its related MCU product line. It has tools, and user guides to
help in the using of the software. Assembler, is helped to be written by the program;
and for devices. they want your file to end in .def.
I like the software, it appears alot like a KDE C programming enviroment, which is
pretty friendly. The programming is linked to physical icons on the right of  your screen,
which seems to let you address the features of the MCU in a GUI way. Alot of work went into
this program, and it looks like a good program to spend alot of time programming in it.  :)

I will never give up. And please don't forget to post the video so I can follow it through all the step.
