A LinuxDevices.com article describes the new Sony Ericsson ROB-1 robot which was announced last week. The robot is basically a small, teleoperated camera contained in an 11 cm spherical shell. The two hemispheres form main drive wheels and a small tail-dragger is used for balance. The robot uses a 200 MHz Freescale Dragonball processor with 2 MB of RAM and runs Linux. The robot can maintain a bluetooth link to a Sony-Erricsson P900/P910 mobile phone. The phone can control the robot and display streaming video from the onboard camera.
