@gruntpuddock: tinkerforge is a modular system, to build own hardware projects that need easy connection between actuators (stepper motors), sensors, digital i/o and your pc.
I think that Andy wants to build his own pano robot.
Unfortunately, tinkerforge has a complete different command structure and "way of controlling" than merlin / panogear and the other from papywizard supported pano heads.
So the only way to connect papywizard to tinkerforge is to fetch the source code of papywizard from papywizard.org, write a new module for connection to tinkerforge, compile, ét le voila, work is done
@Andy: do you have programming experience? Good luck! If your project is successfull, let me know. Since Frédéric has stopped development of papywizard, i am interested in exchanging experience (oops, right words?) in papywizard source, because i self plan to make some changes.
