Exoskeleton Display

Finally got the exoskeleton electronics all hooked up.  Making the wire guides integrate with the frame and look decent turned out to be a bit more involved than I initially anticipated.  In the end I 3d printed them using a new flexible PLA.  The wireless communication (WiFi) is working better now that I'm using an Android phone attached to the Arduino Mega rather than the CC3000.  The left leg is decently calibrated and the model in the video is moving based on the joint positions being streamed from the exoskeleton in real-time (video). There are still the occasional hiccups in the display update (example at 27s into the video), but I'm not sure it is a communication issue or something with the display thread.
