Robot Control Console for Google Android

"Forknife 2" is a robot built by Jeffrey Nelson, Macpod Inc. to show off some of the cool things you can do with open source software and hardware. The robot is based off of the SRV-1 robot controller (www.surveyor.com/). The android application controlling the robot is called SRV1Console and the source + binary for this can be found here: http://code.google.com/p/srv1console


A great idea to use cam phones as robot remotes. The conversion of robots, mobilephones, WiFi, touchscreens and gyrotech in Open Source Space will lay the ground for a multitude of telepresence applications for companies and consumers . Let´s hope that this stuff will be availabe for young developers at schools and robot clubs all over the world to create next generation telepresence services.
