I should have noted in my email where I first saw the device - I receive
both Nuts and Volts and their spinoff, Servo Magazine. The company
advertises in both. But it wasn't until recently that I thought about
its uses for the CoCo.
I haven't yet looked deeply into their BasicX controllers, but from what
I have read, they sound pretty cool. I have a robotics project (if I
ever get back to it, that is) that could use a nice microcontroller for
a few auxillary tasks (servo positioning, mainly), and one of these
might be ideal.
Thanks for the further info on it!
