Fear the autonomous Robosapien

Robosapien PPC/webcam head

We've had vague nightmares about this sort of thing, but now that it's been done we have to admit we're pretty stoked (in that looking over your shoulder all the time kind of way). Some insane Germans who go by Team NimbRo made a neck interface for a Robosapien, removed the thing's head, and replaced it with a PocketPC and a LifeView FlyCam. And it's ugly. As if that wasn't enough, they wrote software to make it totally autonomous, and posted the API and how-tos available online. If we didn't think this was so amazing we might be really, really scared right now.
