First of all, the fact that it runs on Linux is the reason I'm interested in this robot. From seeing it in stores it looks about as good as wind up toys in the 60's as far as movement goes.
However it runs Linux, that means I can do some cool things with it
However, the manuals don't say how the kernel be upgraded to newer versions as they come out. Can I add my own software (that is compiled onto the arm processor?).
Where is the link for the software used. Linux is under the GPL, so the source must be provided along with the kernel, or is it only available to those that have bought the robot.
Also how is this price justified? I've found gumstick computers & robotics kits that go for around $200 retail. So the vision/sound/motor movement/R&D costs $400? It doesn't seem right to me.
