I cant wait until I get home and update to this release!


Glad to have you back with us. Way to go. You remind me of my dog that once disappeared and came back with puppies!

:D :D


You are always one step ahead of me (well, except for the suggestions I made that you said you would do and haven't yet, like video and movement on the same web page...).

Just this morning, I was looking at the 6 servo arm in your shop and thinking how cool it would be to be able to slowly execute position changes while recording and turn that into a script for doing the same movements repeatedly (in my case, picking up cat toys and putting them in a basket on the front of the bot to bring them back to me so I can throw them again, since the cat won't learn to fetch...).

This solution is exactly what I need to achieve it.


New Zealand

Dropped everything and came straight home... I feel like a kid in a candy shop... robot operated of course!


Autoposition is just what I needed! SetEmotion...cant wait until we get the rest.


Thank you for the ScriptStopAll

United Kingdom

What a great release thank you


What a great upgrade! Thanks


I was wondering, is there a way to achieve something such as "scriptstoall" with one or two exceptions so one or two other scripts can still be running?
