Does anyone have experience with this ez-b, it is sold by ez-robot.com and comes with an SDK for Visual Studio

It has direct scripting in runtime and through usb or bluetooth, wifi, irc, https

My question is, if I get a regular arduino board, will i be able to do the same? from what ive read, arduino needs to hold the instructions on its own memory, but I rather have the brain in the computer, and feed signals back and forth to the microcontroller

Also, is arduino alone, a step down as the website niceley puts it

Thanks for your help in advance

  • $\begingroup$ much less people browsing that topic, but i've added it there. perhaps you can kee this open so that someone who knows the answer and doesnt venture to robotics can answer this question $\endgroup$ – Ess Kay May 8 '13 at 20:58
