Here ( http://letsmakerobots.com/node/80 ) Frits had mentioned that either Arduino or PICAXE can control such and such number of servos. I'm pretty new to microcontroller world, so maybe my question will sounds a bit stupid... but I don't really get what we mean by saying "can only control X servos"? Does it actually mean, "platform X can have up to N serial outputs"? Because, AFAIK that's what servos are, aren't they?
Now, I can understand that PICAXE has also limitations due to the built-in Basic interpreter; but why Arduino?
Maybe I'm just misinterpreting the concept of how the servos work though...
