    I agree with Dean. I am interested into home automation and robotics as well. Please, post more articles for this topic.

    I'm thinking of doing some home automation projects, but there are a ton of different hardware platforms out there. I'm curious, it seems that the elk platform can be programmed against without too much trouble, are there any other attributes that stand out?

    Do you happen to know a good source for comparisons of the various platforms?

    Thanks, great article!

    The Elk is very flexible and also has on-board programming capabilities and lots of hardware options. There are also companies like HAI that make similar products. One of the best sources for information is http://www.cocoontech.com.

    There are details on how to use DSS with Managed C++ on the Robotics Studio Forums. You'll get a more detailed answer if you post your question there.

    Some hardware pics would have been helpful in determining if this were something I would want to undergo... Otherwise a great article =)

    Has anyone used Microsoft Robotics Studio for theatre animation (light controllers, etc.?) and animatronics? It strikes me that an intelligent RC servo driver/sequencer could be built easily, but I can't find that anyone has tried these areas yet. I'm an engineer, not a programmer. Any students interested in the challenge perhaps?

    The code for this project doesn't appear to be available for download any more. Does anyone know where I could find it?

    Thanks,

    hi every one, i hav a problem with vplHandsonlabs/lab7. This mvpl file is working properly but the problem is about the c# code. After converting the mvpl program to C#, the code is not running properly. The robot in simulated environment is not responding to recognized speech.
