TurtleBot comes with all of the above plugins pre-installed.
It is also possible to create a special spin of Turtle Art with just
the plugins you want (several deployments do this and I could walk you
through the process)

I need to know more about how to talk to the TI Launchpad and what
sorts of interactions between it and TA you are looking for.

I have a TI Launch pad. Its a microcontroller board with 2 sample MSP430 microcontrollers. This is different than the Atmel microcontrollers that Arudino uses. Someone is working on a fork of Aurdino software called Energia. I guess you need the MSP430 tool chain to support the launch pad as you would need the atmel tool chain for the Arduino environment. -Kev
