Shoe for the robot

Good story, Jon. I'm impressed for your solution for the robot's slippery feet. You created robot shoes so it won't fall down. There's a Sherlock Ohms blog in this story somewhere.

Jon, that was an interesting description of your first experiences.  First, I suggest you get off of WindowsXP.  Windows 7 will make your machine run better and would not have the driver problem, I expect.  I did the upgrade to an old machine and it definately improved the system. 

I am also wondering about wireless communications.  It has a USB port.  I wonder if a Zigbee or Bluetooth dongle might work with this.  Something to try.

More than just a training tool?

Nice in-depth account of how to work with FSLBOT, Jon. Based on your hands-on experience, how might the robot help students and hobbyists dive deeper into mechatronics? And is this simply a training platform or are there possiblities for real applications based on FSLBOT?
