I’m looking for a USB controller board like the now discontinued Make Controller Board, that is able to interface with MAX and controll motors and take in a few sensor digital and/or analog sensor readings.
Arduino is nice indeed, but I’ll miss the Make Controller Board (v1, v2 was buggy) which was a real plug-n-play solution. If you need to add an ethernet shield, a servo shield, a motor driver shield on one arduino, the price will rise significantly!
Don’t know. It seems more an embedded solution rather than a sensor/controller board. I don’t too much about the I/O on it. They have a very long road ahead of them to be as ubiquitous as the arduino though.
