About The Ez-Robot Story On Youtube

DJ nice info on how you started EZB

But you said you made the board to have a replaceable micro chip ,but yet you said in the forum we cant buy the chip ,why is that

Be a great idea for you to sell the replacement chip for a few reasons
one if the chip on the board goes bad ,we just replace the chip ours self
second if others want to make a board using that chip ,would help too

Thanks! The chip is replaceable in case you damage it. That way you don't need to buy a whole new ez-b:) its explained in the video you watched

If you wanted to build another board, i'm okay with that. We won't put the chips online, but they can be purchased by Contact Us form

By february 1st, I don't know why you'd even bother:) We're cutting our prices in half

Geezus - I said it again. I'm going to get myself fired if I keep releasing secrets ahead of time.

@Lumpy - it's been such a successful year.. I want to give it back:)

The point of EZ-Robot is to help everyone build robots, and because it's our fulltime gig, we need to eat too. So now that we're comfortable with funding Revolution, we're going to drop our prices of EZ-B - significantly. Like, it's ridic how cheap it'll be!

I'm very excited:)

Don't worry, we're not dropping the price because it's being depricated. There is A LOT of growth left in the EZ-B... Revolution is EZ-B and more... Man i wish i could tell you!

We have an encoder add-on that will be released shortly. The i2c interface will support a wide variety of EZ-Bits.. Including encoders, serial port buffers (so you can read and write TTL and RS232), and even an Arduino driver.

that great DJ ,nubotics WC-132 board look great for I2C interface it has built-in motor drivers and encoders INPUTS.

You know if you drop the price of the EZB I'm going to be ordering far too many for my bank account's liking... I almost bought 2 more the other day, so glad I waited it out :)

Well there seems to be a massive hint on facebook about part of the revolution;)

Unfortunately, Calgary would be about an 18 hour £400 commute for me...
