Labview based Lego Mindstorms for the OLPC... that really burns me. I
wish we had something that could compete with the proprietary software
they are giving away. But everytime I talk to anyone locally about an
open framework, they just say its easier to use the gratis Labview tools
and aren't at all interested in the idea.
Agreed. I think the basic problem is that usually the ones working on
open source robotics software want to accomplish a specific task with
their robot, they do not do it to write an educational application. You
have to put a whole lot of work into graphical programming tools before
they are usable...
But maybe starting such an application could be a Google SoC project
