Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) has a number of free online materials from their Robotics Academy. The programs, designed to spark interest in robotics among younger students, are known as FIRE, for Fostering Innovation through Robotics Exploration. The program’s mission is to “use the motivational effects of robotics to excite students about science and technology.”

The tutorials include coverage of the Vex Robotics products and LEGO Mindstorm products as well as general topics related to robot development.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
