As a child I played with the old metal meccano/erector sets.  As an adult I even occasionally used metal meccano parts as inexpensive fixturing inside of vacuum chambers. I decided to buy one of the new (plastic) meccano meccanoid robot kits.  Meccano's meccabrain has more outputs than do Lego NXT or EV3.  Speech recognition and the ability to use a smartphone camera as input for motion capture is also interesting.  There is nothing like the range of commercially available NXT compatible sensors, however.  I plan to try to hack the meccabrain inputs.

I have seen people who have hacked the meccabrain software.  We'll see if this platform can be interfaced with Asa H.
