"Planete Robots" is a french paper magazine about robotics. It's printed in 60 000 units and sold in France, Switzerland and Belgium.

The 3rd issue have a great 5 pages about MorphOS and Efika. This computer with this OS is a good choice to equip a robot.

In some days, you'll can buy this magazine via the french robots website http://www.robootic.com.

"Planete Robots" is edited by robotimpact.com, a french blog about robotics, created by Frederic (Screetch) Boisdron, a french MorphOS user.

Nice! I'm a fan of robotics myself, but I'm limited to LEGO Mindstorm as I cannot afford 20k Euro on something that has 27 degrees of freedom! ;)

It would be an interesting project to get a Mindstorm development environment working on MorphOS...

Yes, nice!
But with all those French ladies around, how could you keep your mind on driving servos?

I have always thought even an A600 would be a good robot controller, and I bought  a robot to control, but just have not done it yet; maybe for the next Amiga show ...

Hmm... some time ago, I made a small robotic arm controlled by a PC through the parallel port...
I think I'll try to make It work with my A600 :P

It could be really fun to tinker with lego mindstorms.
I never knew that  software existed, thanks @Cammy!

Nice link Cammy!  I never knew that anyone had ported the Lego software for their robot kits.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)
