Mauricio emailed me a link to his latest project, the Rover AA1. It’s a robot powered by an Arduino and a laptop. Check out the website for more information, including the Arduino and Processing code. [Thanks Mau!]

This idea and had thought for several months, since it figured it would be a practical way to make a robot. And yes it was. Not what he had done so because it first wanted to do with my normal laptop (Vaio K-13) but was a bit complicated because the laptop weighs about 3.5 kg. it represented what a lot of weight to move it with Tamiya. Until they finally got the chance to have an Acer Aspire NETBOOK One, and by its size and weight was perfect for the project.

    That is really cool! How long does it take to get one of those robots up and running?
