Android G1 phone control of SRV-1 robot

Howard Gordon, of Surveyor Corporation, makers of the SRV-1 Blackfin robot platform, sent us a link to this software collaboration they did with Jeffrey Nelson, builder of the Forknife robot. Jeffrey developed an open-source Android console for the SRV-1 that allows you to remotely control and see the camera feed of the bot from a G1 phone. The Android application is called SRV1Console and the source and binary for it can be downloaded from Google Code here.
