One of the key pushes for 11.2.0 is robots, controlled boards and
sensors. We want to know...

 - Which are the interesting and achievable robots/boards/sensors?
Right now we have WeDo, NXT, ScratchBoard, Pico, GoGo -- all can be
connected and need minor tweaking to work.

 - Given that most (all?) are usb-connected, what are their usb
signatures -- for the udev rules?

Gonzalo and I will populate :-)

Other robot/controlled/sensor devices that aren't easily supportable
right now should be listed here or
here .
