Hey, well I am done with high school now. I passed all my exams and now I am waiting for my graduation ceremony. I am going to try to get in the Air Force soon and hopefully make it in. Robot stuff, well I thought about using my BASIC Stamp 2 and Board of Education but the more I think about and how simple it is the more I want to try another microcontroller that uses a more complicated language. If anyone has any suggestion for a microcontroller that is a few steps up from a Basic Stamp 2 please tell me. I have not mastered PBasic yet but I have learned a purdy good bit of it so far and it is really simple. I want to build a robotic arm to use as a test bed for programing. I was going to do some kind of computer based project but all that I have seen and read was automated controled with software and there was no programing invovled so I really want to use a microcontroller. Mabey some kind of PIC or other controller that uses a more complex language than PBasic. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I hope to get started on this project soon. I will probably use my graduation money on this project.
