Cellular data controlled robot

[Jatinderjit] sent along the latest in LEGO robotics. The cell phone controlled robot. It's based on a LEGO Excavator kit with a few spare parts via ebay. The controller is a Nokia phone running a small webserver. A PIC 24F microcontroller runs the show as it receives commands via the phones IR interface. The phone uploads images from the on-board camera as fast as it can update it. Think of it as a poor mans mars earth rover.

FYI, This puppy made engadget while I was working it over, so the site might get a bit overloaded in the near future.
