Project Libraries

For this project I would recommend the following libraries.
  1. python 2.6 (main programming environment)
  2. pyserial (Serial IO)
  3. pygame (fast 2D mapping and input) OR vpython (3D mapping and input)

All of these exist in both windows and linux versions which means we can easily port our code from the netbook to an embedded platform. While you are all familiar with vpython, pygame is a much faster library which is optimized for 2D graphics. (Perhaps our maps can be reduced to 2D)

I have posted some sample code for using a joystick in pygame at:
