Myo Gesture Armband Discontinued

After reading about DJ using these, it piqued my curiousity so I went looking to see how much they cost, and where to buy. Evidently they ceased production/sales last month. :( They don't seem to be showing up on eBay (yet); considering they are a niche product I doubt we'll see many come up. I found a similar product: gForce Gesture Armband...

Heads-Up Competition For Our Beloved Ez-Robot

I know he'll be EZ-Robot based with a dome head and either a cylindrical or square body that will have a retractable arm either in his torso or attached on the side.

question

Book And/Or Website Recommendations?

Hi all! I've been lurking here for awhile; I've got two EZ-B 4's on order, and I'm gearing up to implement them on my own B9 robot project (kudos to Dave S. who is currently setting the standard on the B9 Builders Club board!). As I sit here planning, I realize I have some significant gaps in my knowledge - partly because it's been a *long* time...
