00260 Robot patterns

So the new robot, with two motors (pictures to follow soon) is programmed and creating some simple patterns. To get an idea of how they would look, I used a long exposure (around 76 seconds for the spiral). Real bummer having to wait until dark 'till I could take them.

Spiral 1 Zig zag 1

The spiral would work well if there were loads of them all over the sand, especially if I could do a double spiral, starting in the center of one and ending in the center of the other to give a kind of "figure 8" look.

As soon as I've figured out whether or not I can control the motor speeds, I might be able to form some more complicated patterns.
