Robotic Flower? New Internet-controlled Robots Anyone Can Build, ScienceDaily
Excerpt: Carnegie Mellon University researchers have developed a new series of robots that are simple enough for almost anyone to build with off-the-shelf parts, but are sophisticated machines that wirelessly connect to the Internet. The robots can take many forms, from a three-wheeled model with a mounted camera to a flower loaded with infrared sensors. They can be easily customized and their ability to wirelessly link to the Internet allows users to control and monitor their robots' actions from any Internet-connected computer in the world. The new tools that make this possible are a single piece of hardware and a set of "recipes" (...).
