Intel Edison Arduino Expansion ---> dymanixel motors

I was wondering what the best method to control DYNAMIXEL AX-18A motors from an Intel Edison with arduino expansion board would be, I have teh Arbotix-M, the UartSBee, the Edison with Arduino Expansion Board, and the Arduino Uno. I really want to make it so that I can use the Intel Edison w/ expansion board, and send that to the Arbotix-M. Can you help me?

I stumbled across this project from the RoMeLa lab at virginia tech. It's got my mind racing with ideas. Here is RoMeLa's home page, they have a few other orginal ideas.

28 X2 stack kit, or a canuck kit

So after dealing with Advanced Micro Shiters Services, I bought my kit off a Canadian company, HVW Tech. Calgary based it was bought by Solar Robotics quite recently.

 

Pretty good deal, about 50$ CAD gets you:

- 'AXE Stack-28 kit
- PICAXE Programming Cable
- 2-Panel Solderless Breadboard
- Breadboard Voltage Regulator Kit
- 140 Piece Wiring Kit

 

They called me the day after I ordered to tell me that the wiring kit was out of stock but would send it when they had it.
