… and would like to dust off my old robots and possibly up-grade.
I'm really just a hobbyist (had/have 2 Boe-Bots: one with a Basic Stamp 2 and one with a 2p24) who played around with add-ons like the Ping, IR sensors and EMIC (the original) for fun.
Stopped playing with the robots when the kids no longer took long naps and work/life got busier.
So...I'm thinking of getting the ActivityBot 360° Upgrade Kit for one of my bots, but wanted to ask for opinions before I committed.
What does an Arduino offer that a Propeller does not?
Can someone provide a short explanation on the difference between Propeller 1 and 2 (is 2 merely a 2nd generation of 1)?
I'm inclined toward straight code versus Blocky.
I took a course in Basic way back in 1985, and Modula in 1990, so I feel as if I would be more comfortable with straight text code verses a visual (an unfamiliar) format.
What would I be losing by not considering Blocky?
Thanks in advance,
