I launched a technology project on kickstarter recently. It is an Arduino compatible box that has wifi built in and includes a mobile app to allow you to control it. Software and hardware will be fully open source.

Link to project is:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/694850905/the-ard-vark

It has wifi built in, controls up to 4 servos and 2 DC motors, temperature sensor and light sensor built in with ports to connect other things.

For more advanced users that know the Arduino, the source code will be freely available so they can modify the Ard-Vark with their own code, and still have an easy to use smart phone app to control it. Project will be open source hardware and software.

In response to questions for "advanced users", I created a technical details web page showing block diagram, photos of the prototype board, etc. That page is at

http://activeinnov.com/Ard-Vark_Tech_Details.html.

This link is on the kickstarter project also.

Thanks,

Kerwin
