@lechindianer Yes, bedbugs are awful little creatures!! I would get bitten at least 20 times every night. They are *extremely* difficult to get rid of. I hope I will not have to deal with them anymore!!
I have looked at MANY tutorials on the internet, and most of them just do not really work well. I recently found Real Python [realpython.com] for #Python tutorials. These are well written, and easy to understand. They would be great for beginners, and I recommend them!
@unixb0y Cool! Adafruit is going to make a Mega version of their M4 board. That should be very cool for robots and such! It will be 120MHz and have 192Kb RAM. The first one is their Metro M4, which is the Arduino UNO form factor.
@unixb0y There are much better MCUs available now too, that even have hardware floating point. You should look at the Cortex-M4 based boards. Adafruit [adafruit.com] is starting to roll out some M4 based boards, but parts are still scarce.
@unixb0y I admire those who can build a hexapod or octopod robot and make everything work. I do not need all those legs to tinker with the stuff I want to work with though. Yes, I know somebody who built an eight legged freak.
@unixb0y Inverse Kinematics is only really important when you are dealing with a robotic arm or legs on a walking robot. I can not think of any other use for it right now.
I will stick to wheeled robots! I still do not fully understand PID controllers.
