in thread robotic laser welder

Were this robot code in a general sense, I would feel good in quenching such thirst. But this is robot code of the highly specialized sort, good for doing one thing, and it will never mix drinks, nor fetch your newspaper, nor find your pipe. It can't even play music by itself.

This robot knows how to follow an edge, if mathematically defined to close enough tolerance. Definitely not cutting edge stuff. Now if we ported Perl to the mindstorms, maybe tacking on a few i960 coprocessors, that'd be something...

    Actually, I was just discussing something along these lines in the car with some fellow monks. Robots that follow the emacs school of thought will probably not be very successful in doing anything. The problem domain needs to be defined to a range that the programmer can cleanly implement the robots job in code and the engineers can design the physical attributes that is agreeable with the robot's intended function.

    Probably not exactly what you were thinking of, but there's already a bit of firmware that you can download to the Mindstorms chip and some software that allows you to write Mindstorms programs in C. There's also LEGO::RCX...
