IRC Controlled Robots on FM&CG Episode 16

For episode 15 Ken, Monty and I showed a primitive IRC controlled motor controller and text to speech. Ken and I prototyped the motor controller with the DLP-IO9-G USB 8 channel IO module and several motorized toys. The controller is pretty easy to integrate, because it uses serial characters to configure the IO pins for input, output or analog input and toggle the output pins when in output mode.  Monty improved his Perl scripts to parse the IRC text, output authorized users text to the Macs say command and sending the users motor controls to the DLP modules.
