how are you going to make this line you might be able to use photoresistors to find the line.

yeah, i am planning on using photoresistors to find it, and maybe later on modify them so they can make sharper and more precise turns to follow the black on white line.

i am also thinking instead of pin heads or the PICKit (1,2,3) i might just go out and buy the roboduino (prebuilt microcontroller) so that wya i don't have to go and buy the pin heads or the voltage regulator
