    Hello, Peter.

    We have not tried it, but I do not see why the muscle sensor would not measure a finger movement if the electrodes were placed correctly. We have also not tried using things other than the included hardware as electrodes, so we are not sure if other materials might possibly work with it.

    I recommend contacting the manufacturer, Advancer Technologies, to get more definitive answers to those questions and to learn more about the ICs that they use on the muscle sensor.

    While the LCD pins on the A-Star Prime are remappable, it's probably not that practical to use it on the Zumo with an LCD. However, we are currently working on a Zumo version with built-in LCD support, so stay tuned!

    What you are suggesting does not make sense, since the A* Prime's pins would not match the Zumo's right-side up. Also, some of the pins used for the LCD conflict with their use on the Zumo Shield.

    Hello.

    Thank you for the compliment. The versions we sell preassembled with standard female Arduino headers can plug directly into the Zumo just like a Leonardo or Uno (i.e., upside down).

    Hello, Eric.

    Unfortunately, we do not have the charcoal gray T-shirt in that size; it seems like we might have misjudged the popularity of that color. We will keep that in mind when it comes time to restock them.

    Hello.

    I am sorry you are having trouble using the DRV8838 motor driver. It is difficult to tell what might be the issue without additional information, and this comment section is not very well suited for troubleshooting. Can you post a more detailed description of your setup including pictures of all your connections on our forum?

    Hello, Michael.

    I am not entirely sure what it is you are asking, but if you want to know more specifically how the creator of this arm did something, you might try asking directly on his blog post:
