Hi all,
Have anyone built handyboard designed by Fred.G.Martin from MIT.
If you don?t know what is handyboard u are missing something important. Visit the website www.handyboard.com . It is a microcontroller board based on 6hc11 for controlling robots.

Well I haven't built it...But have used a similar one...Its a clone of the handyboard and similar in architecture with more functionality

I've used the Sumo11 [http://www.1sorc.com] on my Fire Fighting Bot...
If it's helpful ..here's a page detailing my project

Well i dont think people in india would have built it ...

its because 68hc11 is not availible in india :) . But you will find other decent similar clone boards .

Ive built similar boards with avr and 8051 ( Both are good enough)
