Got Micro to work - above is

Got Micro to work - above is an analog trace.  The problem was the library used for serial communication (rxtxLib) can not handle the Micro's serial connection.  The Micro uses "bit-banging" where the serial reading of data is done with software (virtual port) while other Arduino's have "real" hardware dedicated for the port.  I have now gotten MRL working with a newer serial library (Jssc lib)..   And everything appears worky on my machine .   Now comes the logistics of making a build and modifying the MRLComm.ino so that it will compile without errors on the Micro & still allow PWM changes on other boards.

myobotlab.jar build - off API2 (local dev)

Pressure sensor update

Hi Markus, It's been awhile since your last update on this project. How is your pressure sensors coming along? I am wondering if you have them finished and if so how it is working for you?
