Display Popup Tutorial.

Description

This tutorial will guide you through the setup and various uses for using one of the available plugins that can be found on then EZ-Robot website. The display plugin displays your robots response in a text format on a computer or tablets screen. This is a great option if you have a computer display installed on your robot, as this plugin control can be used where speech synthesis is not an option for people with hearing difficulties, and allows them to interact with your robot. This is also useful if you have a robot that does not speak, much like R2-D2, as this can act as a translator of sorts.
