What is the power parameter for the DirectCommands?

Feb 18, 2015 at 4:11 PM
There are several DirectCommands for the motors that involve "Power" (StepMotorAtPowerAsync, TurnMotorAtPowerAsync, TurnMotorAtPowerForTimeAsync, etc). What exactly is "Power"? Can the motors really be turned with a specified amount of power? Not to insult Lego or anybody else, but I would just have been surprised if hardware that was originally designed as a toy would have the hardware capability to control the power. Is that what this really means, or does power mean something different here? Thank you for the clarification.
