Empowerment kit goes primetime: Arduino meets Hummingbird

Tom Lauwers of Birdbrain has a new creation: he’s made a board that combines a complete Arduino with a craft robotics programming board, Hummingbird. So now it is totally programmable, and can be used by essentially any age robot-creator to make new robots, program them iconically, and program them directly using high-level languages.  He has announced a kickstarter this week, and I am happy to endorse the project.  It’s an example of authentic empowerment through robotic technologies.
