PDP #10: PLTW Software & Lynxmotion Robots Intro

PDP #10: PLTW Software & Lynxmotion Robots Intro

on Tuesday, 12 April 2016. Posted in Chris’ Blog


Oops! Almost forgot to talk about the software!  Thanks for the reminder Jim. In this hour long video (with very poor sound quality) We discuss PLTW software, how to download it, how to install it and a guide to where to get all the resources. The picture here is an SSC-32U, the controller for a Lynxmotion Robotic Arm, because we cap off the session with an intro to this including how to build, how to wire, and how to connect to software.  Below is an outline of the topics discussed, and some links for resources!

Sorry for the crappy sound quality…. new mic is on the way!
