How to control your Wowwee Robot with Windows Messenger

cimplexsounds's picture

An expeiment I tried a while back using just Windows messenger technology, a roboremote, and a webcam. I was amazed. It worked.

Using Windows messenger you can control your robots remotely. This technology is in it's experimental stages so it's not perfect. The benefits? control your robots remotely using just Windows technology, and no IP Addresses required.

 

 What you'll need?

1. Two Windows XP Computers, and broadband internet access.

2. A Wowwee Roboremote and the Roboremote software installed.

Sphero Drives a Car

In the video below, Sphero commands the toy car where to drive. It does this through a trackball similar to the one used in a computer mouse or in the arcade game of golf . Sphero sits on the trackball's wheels and his weight and momentum cause them to move. The wheels have encoders that then tell the car what direction Sphero is moving by sending out x and y coordinates of the movement to the motors. Roll Sphero forward and the car drives forward. Roll Sphero to the right and the car turns to the right.

Best Controller and software??

Hi guy's. Im pretty new to the robotics scene and only have a little bit of experience. I don't have a ton of time to commit so was looking to see if someone knows of a solution that will allow me purchase a controller that comes with software that allows me to "hack" a robot easily. I don't want to spend time coding at all (since I dont really know how) but would like to still be able to add or remove features from my robot easily!

Please tell me something like this exists!!!!
