DIY Robots For The Masses?


iPhone’s have a lot of apps for doing stuff, but Google’s Android OS is so open and free that programmers used it to create a mini operating system for driving this tank.

If Google maintains this level of user-empowered innovation, where devices are powered beyond the phone, they will pass Apple’s closed circuit empire.  I’m picturing hundreds of toys/bots/small vehicles being produced for the masses with an interchangeable brain called a ‘Google Android phone’.

Bring it hard coders.  Build a bot-army so Google wins.
