My card dealing robot, the Duplimate, is finished. I posted a lot of questions on this forum, all of them were answered. I'm proud of the result
A java program on the laptop reads a file with the cardeal. This deal is converted to an array and sent to the NXT via USB (thanx Lawrie). The playing cards have unique self painted color-codes. The NXT drops the cards in cardholder 1(North), 2(E), 3(S) or 4(W).
The input of the javaprogram can be a .pbn file or a .xml file. The .pbn file is the portable bridge notation. I think in the future this .pbn notation wil be replaced by the .xml notation.
