One of my planned uses for Spark is as the core of a robotics kit for my son, who is dying to get involved in robotics and programming. After lots of research I think I have settled on the BOE Shield for Arduino and their Robot Kit. (http://www.parallax.com/product/130-35000)
Does anyone out there have any experience with this kit (pre-Spark) or have similar plans? The idea that he can sit down with his laptop and reprogram it and control it over the network / internet should make this a real hit!
As soon as I get the kit in, hopefully next week, I’ll update this post with my experiences.
