Testing the robot

The robot, it’s quite a handful. Today we tested getting it to run the tracks we want it to, and it gives me a feel for its quirks. It’s got plenty, I guess; handmade hardware always has. On the other hand this offers the opportunity to have a deeper insight into this ‘black box’ than regular system-on-a-chip technology. I know how things are connected inside it, and I have a feel for the decisions that have been taken in the evolution of the hardware and the software. Very interesting stuff.

I also created a Twitter account for our trip. When we’re in Nigeria it should be possible to easily update everyone on our adventures by just pointing your browser to www.twitter.com/nomadicmilk.
