Robosapien price alert for some areas of the United States.

Bed, Bath, & Beyond has a 20% off coupon in the most recent weekend major newspapers (11/21/2004). Combine that with their store price of $69 and you can get a Robosapien for only $55! I got a coupon from a neighbor who had it and picked one up today. Actually it's my second. :) I got my first one at Sharper Image for $89.

Latest project updates:

I dug up my old P5 Virtual Reality glove which has: 5 finger bend sensors, X/Y/Z position tracking, Pitch/Roll/Yaw tracking, and 3 buttons. You can get a P5 from EBay for dirt cheap these days.

I downloaded their SDK and now I am working on controlling my 6 "jointed" Robix robotic arm with the glove. The P5 works great and I am already generating movement in the robotic arm by moving the glove. I figure it will take about a week or two to get the glove-to-arm movement mapping to where I want it to be.

I am referring to the book "AI Game Programming Wisdom 2" c6jones720 mentioned in the post below.
