Operating System
Operating System: Windows (XP/Vista/7) and internet access to download the software.
Programming Language: The Scribbler 2 graphic programming is a puzzle-like environment similar to Scratch. The robot can also be programmed with Python or Spin (a C language). The benefits and flexibility of Spin in multi-core systems provides easy compartmentalization of S2 subroutines that run concurrently with shared memory. Controlling motors, managing sensors, and interfacing with the hacker port can be done concurrently even while playing sound; the Propeller Chip inside the robot makes it all possible.
