Big Trak Baby by Aaron L. Richards

Big Trak is a robot created from a Mattel Big Trak chassis, and a Packard Bell - Cyrix '486
processor based laptop.  I created an interface between the laptop and the Big Trak
motor/transmission using 5v reed relays and the outputs off of the parallel port.  It is programmed
in Visual Basic 6.0., and uses parallel port access software called (if I recall correctly) Basic
In/Out 32.

I have grand plans outlined for my creation, which are outlined at the following address:
