It’s alive!

The robot has a name: Jake. Jake stands for “Java Karel with Events”. Jake is based on Karel the robot, with an objects-first approach and some new button-based event interfaces.

Today the first prototype is complete: Jake can move, turn and bump into walls. He’s programmable in Java using the “jaketherobot” package. There are world, robot, beeper and wall classes.
So far Jake only exists as a collection of classes. The JAKE IDE is planned for development within the next couple of months.
