My little brother dropped by last weekend, while on his journey through Europe by bike.  So, what’s more fun than playing with robots when it’s raining cats and dogs outside? That’s right, adding cameras to the robots!  I didn’t get any pictures of the robot with the camera on it, but you can see where it was held by the rubber bands on the end of the boom.  The angle of the boom was also remote controllable.

The video was a lot of fun to make.  The controls were a little wonky because I somehow managed to switch left and right on the remote control.  However, it worked quite well.
