Collaboration with Multiplo
If you haven't heard already, Julián from the awesome Multiplo project and I have been discussing adding Galago support to MiniBloq, their popular visual development tool. I take pride in how powerful and easy our development tool is, but MiniBloq allows radically simple drag-and-drop development of interactive projects for hobbyists and makers of all ages. This partnership opens the door to Galago-powered robots that scale from a child's building-blocks approach to programming logic, to a teenager's sophisticated MiniBloq design with obstacle avoidance and ultimately to a college student's powerful creation featuring DSP and image recognition. I think it's going to be great!
Many of you have asked and I've now added a handy color-coded pin reference chart for Galago which tells you which pins have which features available. Part of Galago's clever design is that all pins are always accessed by their name in the code, and the name is printed on the board itself. This means that you don't need to refer to the chart when developing, and it's just another enhancement to help you make things better.
We can do it!
I'd also like to thank you all for your support and generous contributions. It's only because of your help that we're able to make Galago possible at all. In fact, we can only produce them if we reach our funding goal! To that end I humbly ask you to spread the word to your friends on Twitter, Facebook and Google+, to mention us to your co-workers and to your community. We can do this, together!
