@Admin, That sucks... good that you are not using that company any more...

The damaged axons seem repairable, i do have a hot air reflow kit that makes the process considerably easier. How much would it cost for me to buy a couple of the damaged ones off you?

Don't worry about, the company should have them repaired for me in the coming ~4 weeks. :)

One question that hasn't been answered is how the wifi is interfaced with.  To quote what I previously asked:

Quote
From my limited experience, the whole xbee/zigbee stuff is confusing.  I didn't find any statements of how the wireless is connected to 'stuff'.  An example, and/or specific hardware that it works with would be useful.
For example:
-Pair direct to a computer with a Wifi card?
-Pair with a computer-connected xbee?
-Pair with a different bot that uses an xbee?

My needs are: 1) a wifi serial connection with a computer (preferably not ad-hoc); and 2) a UART to control AX-12 servos.  Most awesome would be if I can pair the zigbee radio (actually not even sure if that's what's on there) with a common Xbee (Series 2, ZB, as Sparkfun refers to the ones I have), which would in turn be connected to my computer via usb as I already do.

Thanks! (Looks like I can deal with the 3.3V stuff, btw...)

Gertlex, I'm not completely sure. The Atmel documentation all makes it appear as possible, but I have no proofs to make a claim either way. I'd assume if your software imitates the proper command structures of Xbee/wifi, it'll work.

My wireless code will be released as beta, ie it works but no bells and whistles [yet]. So it'll be very open to outside suggestions.

I take it that you've only tested the wifi capabilities between multiple Motes?

As for imitating the command structure... Right now I just treat my xbee connection like it's serial connection (serial port on computer to UART on Axon).  I'll wait and see if it ends up being that simple :)  (I'll even put mounting holes on the robot chassis which would fit the Mote)

The Motes came in today, and I ran a whole bunch of basic (but not exhaustive) tests on two units, and everything checks out great!  :D

The Axon Mote is now officially for sale, and I'll ship the first batch out first thing tomorrow.

Admin, will Robotshop eventually be selling Motes?

I was wondering because I noticed that they are listed as one of the official dealers of the axon 2, but they only carry the original one.  :(

The Axon Mote will only be sold through SoR for this year.

I just uploaded a bunch of 'action shots' of the Mote here:

I also uploaded a bunch of pictures of the Axon Mote when it was set up for space travel:
