MaVo has made some great advances in the WebGUI, I have added some functionality as well.   My intent is to merge these 2 branches unless someone has a better idea.  Merging is a big pain, but making mrl better is worth it.  I like to think of it as genetic engineering where we are taking the traits of two different organisms and making a Bigger Stronger Faster MRL !   The following list are some of the details.

Ok, So I realize that I'm editing and updating this blog in reverse.. but so be it.  Anyway, here's another little update on the progress with these bevel gear / robot arm joint project.  It moves!  It knows where it moves!

So, I saw on hack-a-day that there was going to be a meetup at the Artist Asylum here in Boston.  I wasn't even aware of any maker spaces around here, so I just had to go check it out.  Awesome times, lots of cool projects, including.. yes..  a hover board...

Looking Inside a Service

brotherbrown831's picture

I am very new to MRL and programming in general, I have had alot of success borrowing and modifying examples to achieve my desired outcomes however my projects are getting more involved and I would like expand my scripting arsenal. 

Is there a way for me to open a service (Joystick for example) so i can see all the variables, methods and tags that excists within that service so I can use them? I know about the Joystick.map and Listener only becuase I saw them in an example. I would like to be able to find these things on my own.  

azul got sick, needs meds

Azul developed a problem when running mrl ver. 1.0.119.  Any ear.addCommand  with i01.getName() does not work.  Example ear.addCommand("da vinci", i01.getName(), "daVinci").

 Azul repeats the command and I say “ yes” but nothing happens.  Can someone shed “light” on this? Or has anyone else noticed this?

This is my robotic arm with 6 DOF and i control it using MyRobotLab through vocal controlling.

Watch the video.

Thank you and good look!
