The Hull Pixelbot Meetup
(Above: Rob's WiFi-enabled Pixelbot.)
Today Rob Miles was kind enough to give me a lift to the monthly hardware (or hull pixel bot) meetup. It was different to what I'm used to, but it was rather fun actually!
Rob Miles has built a kit that gives you the parts to build your very own Arduino-powered robot that trundles around on the floor. He's also managed to add a WiFi chip to it too - so you can (provided you write the code) connect to your pixel bot and control it remotely!
You can build your own by going to hullpixelbot.com.
I'll certainly be playing around with it and attending the next meetup (meetups are on the first Thursday of every month at 6:00pm at C4DI).
