Welcome Bobby,

I'm doing a fair bit of microcontroller work (no robotics, just dataloggers
mostly), but the biggest device I'm using only has 24kB of flash and 2kB of
RAM. Although I use Python regularly during development, I've never
contemplated putting a Python VM on the micro. Is that what you meant?

I mostly use Python for quick & dirty datalogger<->PC communications,
testing, and the occasional bit of code generation (i.e. writing Python
programs which spit out C code for me).
