Ino: Command Line Toolkit for Arduino Hardware

Ino tools webpage : Ino is a command line toolkit for working with Arduino hardware It allows you to: Quickly create new projects Build a firmware from multiple source files and libraries Upload the firmware to a device Perform serial communication with a device (aka serial monitor) Ino may replace Arduino IDE UI if you prefer to work with command line and an editor of your choice or if you want to integrate Arduino build process to 3-rd party IDE. Ino is based on  make  to perform builds. However Makefiles are generated automatically and you’ll never see them if you don’t want to. Features Simple. No build scripts are necessary. Out-of-source builds. Directories with source files are not cluttered with intermediate object files. Support for  *.ino  and  *.pde  sketches as well as raw  *.c  and  *.cpp . Support for Arduino Software versions 1.x as well as 0.x. Automatic dependency tracking. Referred libraries are automatically included in the build process. Changes in  *.h  files lead to recompilation of sources which include them. Pretty colorful output. Support for all boards that are supported by Arduino IDE. Fast. Discovered tool paths and other stuff is cached across runs. If nothing has changed, nothing is build. Flexible. Support for simple ini-style config files to setup machine-specific info like used Arduino model, Arduino distribution path, etc just once. ( Homepage )

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
