This is a very simple robot based on a Raspberry Pi with a L293D motor controlles connected to two motors and wheels.

Running on the Pi I have a python script which checks the current message on livebots and moves the motors accordingly.

 

You can control it LIVE at:

You definitely cornered this one :P

(I suspect my el-cheapo webcam to be down at the post office *crossing fingers* so that it works with the pi :P -- then I'll just need the wifi dongle to arrive too :P)

Congrats for Pi  \o/ 

What a great job, really nice to see the Raspberry Pi being put into use  here.  I am quite fond of the PICAXE microcontrollers but am hoping to use the Raspberry Pi in some future project myself.  Great work, thanks for showing it to us.

LOL @ Ghetto baby monitor ....cracking up!   That said, great job on the bot.  Just got a PI literally this morning :)

double post :)
