This robot is controlled by FEZ Mini board that runs .NET Micro Framework. What’s interesting is that this board has pin-out compatible with Basic Stamp from Parallax. You can also uses it easily on a breadboard for prototyping (just like Boarduino). TinyCLR.com also offers a larger board called FEZ Domino that has pin-out compatible with Arduino ......

Since I got one design working at hand, I decided to give it a try. The process is very straightforward. First you simply put all the components in the breadboard view. The parts library contains most common parts, and you use wires to connect them – exactly the same as you would do on your physical prototype: Next you can switch ......
