Mantis software uses the Dynomotion Kflop processor. Here an engineer has programmed a Kflop to control a robot arm, complete with inverse kinetics.

No sign of a software interface - but it only has to repeat a single canned move sequence.

The mechanics are nice too - Harmonic Drives with steppers and servos.

Fancy doing a bit of trigonometry and apply all these complex inverse kinematics and forward kinematics equations to a premium version of Mantis? with a good gui it would increase its appeal even more!

I actually have an existing test version I wrote a few years back. If you build a robot I can send a copy.. :)
