Hi. I am considering getting a Sparki in the near future. I like how simple it seems to interface with it. Just had a few questions that relate to my goals:
I plan to command Sparki over Bluetooth on a computer. The Sparki IDE can compile ordinary, platform-independent C/C++ code, correct?
I would like to mount a camera by the ultrasonic sensor. I don’t need high res images and can deal with a low frame rate (even still images if necessary). Would most Arduino cameras work in the expansion port, and would there be enough free pins to accommodate for it (with the bluetooth module also attached)? Would enough power be supplied to it? Do you have a suggestion for a particular camera that is simple and would work decently?
I may not have much use for the line sensors. If that is the case, can they be unplugged and can some other kind of 3rd party sensor be attached in their place?
At some point I may want to integrate some kind of voice recognition/synthesis, and may want to attach a speaker/mic to it, although for now I could just do that with the computer that is controlling the Sparki. Any general considerations you would recommend for a goal like this?
Thanks for the info.
