  • Pololu sells a version of the gearmotor with an integrated encoder. Will gearmotors with integrated encoders fit in the Wild Thumper’s motor housings?

  • I just received my XBee Explorer USB, but when I plug it into my computer (tried both a macbook and a mac mini) it does not show up as a serial connection in /dev. It is listed as a device connected to the serial bus however. I have searched, but have not found anyone else having this problem. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
    Update: Although not mentioned in any tutorial I have read, and I’ve read several, you will need to install a driver for the FTDI chip to get the USB explorer to work. After installation, the explorer works fine.

No public wish lists :(
