I think the gumstix issue deserves a thread of its own..

Hi! I just discovered this site. I'm the builder of Bing. I will get some more detailed information on my web site pretty soon; right now I'm working desperately to get Bing ready for RoboGames in San Francisco next week. If it successfully walks I'll be happy.

The current version of Bing does not use a gumstix board, but the next version will use one (or at least I think it will!).

I have learned a lot getting Bing as far along as it is so far, but am looking forward to correcting its design flaws in the next version.

Derek, might you ellaborate on how you think to use Gumstix in your project ? You know people here (well, mostly Limor :-)) is interested in this platform too.

I'm not exactly sure yet, it's just such a cool and tiny board that I want to use it!

There are gumstix boards with built in bluetooth, so I could use that to replace the radio scheme I am using now, which uses a rather large 8-channel 75mhz receiver.

I also am toying with some ideas for controlling the robot that will benefit from a lot of processing power, and the gumstix can provide that.
