Well I was not happy with the strength if the trail wheel in the raspibot, so yesterday being a flood day (Calgary downtown is shutdown, no power) I rebuilt the raspibot chassis. See pictures:

So over the next couple of days I will work on the driver (python - nxt) code.

I have been working on my rapsibot. This weekend I got nxt-phyton installed on the Raspberry Pi Model a that will be commanding the Lego Mindstorm NXT that drives the robot (for now). I used some code from David Llewelld's Blog (hope I got the name correct) I plan on connecting from a PC/notebook or eventually another Raspberry Pi and joystick to remotely control my raspibot. One step at a time.

I cannot believe that I have not posted a picture of my most used Raspberry Pi setup.

This is the Raspberry Pi startup kit from adafruit Raspberry Pi Starter Pack - Includes a Raspberry Pi Computer, but of course the included case is their newer injection molded case :( I will have to get one of those soon.
