Either way we're in the market for a replacement if anyone has a spare.And a few pics of his progress...Tops | Updated 7/3/2011 (ORIGINAL)Under Tops | Updated...

Radmeck's Big WALL-E
My son named this guy Big WALL-E in comparison to the smaller Interaction model he aptly named Little WALL-E...Big WALL-E began life as a U-Command model and he (and his unfortunate owner) apparently spent a great deal of time over the past few years in some sort of second-hand smoker's Nirvana; yet I saw no mention of it on his eBay listing. At...

This little robot grew out of my son's insistence on building the sample project pictured on the Tamiya Universal Arm Set packaging (see first pic below). Not wanting to duplicate the sample exactly, I changed a few things here and there and then stumbled upon the shell of a cheap convenience store RC vehicle to help pull it all together.The EZ-B...

Retr0bright or How I learned to love Chemical De-yellowing
Today we're going to attempt what was once thought impossible. We're going to remove that nasty yellow color from our aging white plastic! Our willing test subject is the ever-affable Mr. Vanilla Ice (Tomy Omnibot circa 1984). If you're not familiar with the chemical de-yellowing solution known as Retr0bright, head on over to The Retr0bright...

Bluetooth Alternative (RS232 or USB)
DJ, is there a way to convert the EZ-B to use USB or RS232 to communicate with the host PC? I'm considering using a mini or nano-itx mobo to...

Pololu Dual Serial Motor Controller
I managed to snag a now-discontinued Pololu dual serial motor controller from eBay after seeing it recommended on the Add-Ons page. I couldn't find any sample code in the SDK for controlling it with the EZ-B so I used "Tutorial 15 - Serial Output" as the basis for a proof-of-concept controller. Here's what I came up with: If anyone else is...

Missing Microphone Bug...
Hello, I spent the better part of the day trying to figure out why EZ-Builder and the projects in the EZ-B SDK would not recognize any of my video sources. I assumed it was being caused by the EZ-B.dll as other projects I've created are able to see the devices. Since I couldn't debug the EZ-B.dll (sure wish I could!) I Ultimately downloaded the...
