Home Linux Robot?


Hi,

Since the 2-3 years, the world of robots based on Linux
has been releasing a great number of new inventions.

I would like to know if it is possible to buy a cheap
home robot such as Spykee,... and others.

One with Legs like the Honda one would be great,
but it is far far too expensive.

Here 1 good robot and 2 devil robots
Greetings

Skitterbot should be cheap and comes with a usb interface for charging the batteries and a infrared radio remote controller. Mount a mini camera and have fun with it I guess.

I am sure it should/must exist a r2d2 from Starwars as a toy or better a robot-controlled over an iPhone.

It is so small that it might be difficult to mount an usb camera on it, no? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTey3aBp57c

We can't even exist on Earth for 2 seconds without someone trying to take control/overpower/enslave of the other.
