Hmmm - extra servo connection in the RBT-1 Arm

So I was checking out the RBT-1 in more detail and checking through the manual in greater detail as well. There is a gyro in development and a specific connection on the RPU-11 unit for it which is refered to in the manual. I also noticed that there is an extra servo connector slot in each arm. Hmm, maybe some grippers coming, I don't know this is all speculation right now, there was nothing mentioned about that.

Well after seeing the extra servo connection, I started to dig around in the program. What I really like about the RBT-1 Motion Editor is all the files I have been browsing are ASCII text - very hackable and provides the option to easily create your own tools. Motions Files, Poses and in the System data the trim, default servo positions and servo configuration setup. I doesn't look like the software is setup to dynamically read in the configuration and lay out the textboxes, I haven't confirmed that but did a quick test by adding in my own servo ids for lets say grippers. It gave me an error stating invalid file, I'll do some more digging. Details to follow at a later date/time
