I love the clever interface between this Mindstorms car and the web. Maker Leon from Rye, NY, built a Skype-based interface that changes the screen color based on the button clicked, and a light sensor (the second photo) detects the color change and sends a command to the car via bluetooth. To control the robot, click on this link and follow the directions, and Leon will leave it set up through the 18th.
