I've been working on a new programmable microcontroller product. One of the unique features of the microcontroller is that it is that it is programmed using Java and the Eclipse IDE. I wanted to come up with a nice demonstration that would showcase the microcontrollers capabilities. After coming across Trossen Robotics and the Dynamixel family of actuators, I decided to take a stab at putting together a robotics demo. I designed an add-on module that allows the microcontroller to control AX and MX series actuators. I then wrote a program that drove a pair of TurtleBot arms to play a game of tic-tac-toe. Here is a YouTube video showing the arms in action.
