Nice. Are you following the development of Fire Pick Delta?

Oh, yes. Very cool stuff.

We're focusing on the feeders at this point. A lot of folks will probably just cut off some of the tape and expose the parts manually.

Cool! You are aware of the software I offer on my site, right? (http://www.liteplacer.com)

I was amazed to find your liteplacer project. Amazing work... just wow! I've been looking at all the great stuff on you site, but I haven't looked at your code yet.

I just got the feeder firmware working today. I'll try to put a video up tomorrow. That's what I've been working on this week.

You wouldn't mind then if we add a module to your software to control our feeders? I saw your intro YouTube video and the software looks very good.

Thank you for the kind words! It has been quite the project. We are still working on making it better and better. Seems like every time we change one thing we end up having to change everything to get it to work.
