    Thanks..but I was looking for some code examples of the arm being controlled by the Pi. It's a shame you cant use Scratch to control it.

The kids have been teaching themselves using the project cards and helping each other with it - really straightforward to use and have started to learn about electronics too with it.
    @RTi this page has videosshowing the commands live and what the robot arm does in response.

    @vickit The Robot arm that comes in the FUZE kit is the same as the Maplin one which retails at £35 (just for robot arm) reviews on Maplin say that there is no stop sensors so you can easily go beyond the movement limits and grind the plastic gears. Does the FUZE kit solve this issue by abstracting the motor timings into steps?



    Fuze kits look awesome! The case for the Rasp Pi make's it look like a BBC Micro. FUZE basic is designed to be a simple to learn as BBC BASIC.
