Someone asked if they could upload a photo of their robot to an ARC project. Ironically, I had been working on a new Virtual Robot Control - which provides a visual display of your robot servo positions. This is a much friendlier method of organizing servo settings.

Guys I can't do a rain dance to save me in a drought but there's just a chance that I can .... lol

Thanks again DJ Sures. You've made my day!

This is phenomenal DJ! So simple and intuitive.

Thanks soooo much.


I love all these new features... wonder when I will learn all the "old" ones let alone get to these before they too become "old" :)


This is really good direction for ARC ... something similar integrating a Kinect and other sensors would be outstanding.... all in good time I guess..
