Controlling a MeArm with the Raspberry Pi and the Picon Zero

I recently reviewed the Picon Zero from 4tronix. It’s a motor controller board with the ability to drive six servos and two DC motors. It’s a great little board and Robin Newman has done something with it that just appeals to my robotics brain 🙂 He’s used the Picon Zero together with the Raspberry Pi and a MeArm. He’s then hooked up a PS3 controller (I think by Bluetooth) and programmed everything to worth together. He has therefore got a very controllable, very smooth-operating robot arm. You can see it at work in the video above. Visit YouTube and give it a thumbs-up!
