This is a really cool robot by Patrick Adesso. It uses a MAKE Controller to communicate with a desktop application written in Flex / ActionScript. Check out the link for more information, pictures, and the source code. [Thanks Liam!]
A personal project to create a mobile robotic platform, started more than a year ago. Desktop software (originally created in .NET C# and then ported to Flex/ActionScript) communicates with the mobile platform, can monitor its surroundings via a mounted webcam, operate it remotely and activate autonomous mode.
