We're going to play with ARC software, build Perry's robot eyes, make Dynamixel servo cables, demonstrate how to move dynamixel servos and record positions, and more! As usual, anything you want to see, comment below:D

Aaaand - good news is YouTube fixed their bug. It's interesting because they must have done the change over between the time I created the event. Because tonight I went to show Amin the bug, and the bug still exists with my previous YouTube event - but it works fine with a new event that i create. So when in doubt, create a new event when YouTube doesn't co-operate:P

Unfortunately I wont be able to join in until my daughters winter ball is over. Hopefully by 7 pm pacific time.


Looks like my daughter is not going to the ball, so I will be here.
Hey DJ,
I have some similar servos that are discussed in a similar thread. They are LX-16A Lewansoul LOBOT servos. Could you demonstrate the plugin you made for those if there is time? Maybe talk about the differences. Honestly I am not too interested in Dynamixel servos as their price makes them unusable for 90% of us. You're demonstrating caviar when I have to stop at McDonalds to eat.:D

Robotis has the new Dynamixel  [font=OpenSans, -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, "Segoe UI", Roboto, "Helvetica Neue", Arial, sans-serif, "Apple Color Emoji", "Segoe UI Emoji", "Segoe UI Symbol", "Noto Color Emoji"]XL 430-W250-T  which is $49.00.  You get all the great position feed back that DJ has implemented in the dynamixel plug in, something you cant get with a regular servo. That is if DJ can get that particular servo to work with the EZB. Fingers crossed.
:)Hey it was great to see details on up coming secret Lidar, I am so stoked to see it is coming, that is next level robot programming (And hopefully Easy Robot style)when you can teach robots to avoid falling down the stairs or entering the dogs room but still have it roaming and exploring on it's own with Lidar mapping!
Thank you guys for putting these videos streams much fun and DJ you rocked on that trouble shooting! Thanks Jer for your robot building..I have to watch your video tomorrow over coffee!
I figured out how to share my desktop in OBS Studio without a black screen. The reason i was having a blank screen when sharing is my laptop has two video cards (nvidia and intel). The software was set to use the second video card, which wasn't being used. I forced the software to use the the Intel video card in the NVidia control panel. So next friday you can see my screen!! w000t
Ahhh good find!! I’m looking forward learning the program this week, would be fun to try hosting.. but have no idea what to build or design...hmmmm
Hey DJ, thank you for the video but the configuration of the new dynamixel do I need to do the same with the AX 12's.
It was stunning to see dj.s master brain in action.
@JerseyLance - The firsts dynamixel i demonstrated was an AX-12. All you have to do is follow the instructions that i demonstrated to the detail and you're good to go.
Just re watching the servo demo at the beginning as I missed it the first time live,very informative. So now I just need to know if I need to be careful which brand of servo will work using EZ controller if I am planning to use Linear servo. If Dynamixel makes any Linear servo's they will work?
Any PWM servo will work. So there's a high probability that your Linear servo will work.

Yes that was what I was thinking too as it is basically just up and down like on remote car steering left and right,but I am interested in the newer heavy duty ones coming out,should be same just more voltage/amps.
Just still watching to see what you did for cable attachments on servo,that could be interesting.
