RobotBASIC is a scripting and simulation that runs on a PC. It isn't a cross-compiling language that runs on the embedded microcontroller.

The 50 dollar robot is programmed in C, and no.

You could program the controller in a dialect of BASIC.

BASCOM, for example, is BASIC for the AVR. http://www.mcselec.com/

well, you use a compiler to "compile" all of the bits of code into a .hex code that gets uploaded to the microcontroller.
