raspberry + arduino / webiopi + firmata (python)

Im buildin internet controlled rc car with arduino, arduino motor shield and raspberry.
So how to use firmata and webiopi at the same time.

Global Domination Robot (GDR) Mk 2

Primary image

What does it do?

Navigates around via ultrasound, moves turret and fires "Death Ray" at targets

Here is the GDR Mk 2. I've recycled the parts from the GDR Mk 1 and made some additions/upgrades:

- Built a body for the robot out of a couple of storage boxes

- Added a 2 POF Turret to the top

- attached a laser pointer to the turret and programmed it to aim and fire

- split the power so there is now dedicated power to the motors.

Ben Heck fashions a pocket computer with an Xbox Chatpad and Arduino Uno

It's great to see Ben Heck focus his efforts of do-gooder projects like that foot-controlled wheelchair, but we'll always have a soft spot for the modfather's more nostalgic undertakings, like this BASIC pocket computer. Heck created the device for the latest episode of his web show, and if you're following along at home, you'll need the Chatpad from an Xbox 360 controller, an Arduino Uno and a LCD display -- a Hitachi HD 44780, in this case. The modder-turned-host is quick to point out that the project's purpose isn't solely nostalgic -- you can also use it to control real world objects, which in the Heck's case means a ghost on a pinball playfield. Check out a video of the invention in action after the break.

Try this....

Take a look at this:

It LOOKS like an Arduino (but its not). Same basic Arduino feature set. (add a power switch and a little more neat stuff)

It runs ,,,,,, tada ,,,,,, BASIC!  (Don't run, shake or shiver!)

(It looks one HECK of a lot like P-BASIC (STAMP 2) but has more commands and floating point.)

The editor can be downloaded and looks nice, but nothing special.

The manual looks nice and well organized and is BIG, but again is nothing special.

It costs $29

mikroC vs BASCOM AVR

A few days ago I was going to try some programming in C using mikroC. So far I have been able to blink a LED...  mikroC is primarily designed to support the circuit boards MikroElectronica makes and does very little for the Arduino (and they plan on keeping it like that). It is still a great (but expensive!) C, just not one for the Arduino.
