This bot was built by Andrew Hundt, Boris Lipchin, and Ned Fox for an Intro to Robotics class at Carnegie Mellon. It uses modified DarwiinRemote software and the venerable MIT HandyBoard to tank-drive a camera-equipped LEGObot. Andrew writes:

This robot is composed of Legos and uses a handyboard as the control hardware. It has 4 wheel drive each controlled by a lego motor, and a pan tilt mount for directing light and the video camera. The Wii Remote talks to a MacBook Pro over bluetooth to modified DarwiinRemote software, and the computer in turn communicates with the robot over a serial port.
