9DOF IMU Development For Dynamixel Based Robots - Part 1

I recently purchased the 9 Degrees of Freedom - Razor IMU from Sparkfun Electronics

My intentions with this device is to use it as a platform to start the development of an IMU that communicates on the Dynamixel AX (and/or RX /EX) buss for easy use in Dynamixel based robots.

Using Digi's X-CTU Application Under Linux To Configure Xbee Modems

Digi's X-CTU application is for configuring and testing Xbee modems. It works great but is windows only.

While rebooting into windows just to configure an xbee was a pain it worked. But this is no longer an option now that I no longer keep a windows installation on my machine. I needed a solution!
