I built this BoeBot flamethrower, but I've barely had a chance to code anything. Too many other robots! Here's my new PING routine. If anyone has some cool BoeBot routines that could use a flamethrower, bring 'em to expo on a flashdrive and we'll try 'em out.

    Couldn't any program benefit from this? Obstacles while line following? Tell em to get off the line or face the consequences.

    Does Parallax have a marshmallow sensor? Combine that, your Flame-BoeBot and one of your robot arms and you got a S'more Bot - that, my friend is MONEY!!

    How about a collaboration of robots to make smores? :-) ..... One to hold the marshmallow, another to cook the marshmallow, and a third to hold the chocolate bar in place while a 4th comes in gripper style to sandwich everything between the gram-crackers.... ohh and a 5th to serve it to you on a plate.

    That's hysterical.

    Is this the next generation of Hot Wheels?

    The FOUR Laws of Robotics (2012)

    The FOUR Laws are:
    1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
    2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
    3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.
    4. ALL robots need a flamethrower!
