Sparky Jr. uses free software, including Skype for free video chat
and our open source joystick plug-in. It's so simple.... If you can
get Skype working, you can drive Sparky from anywhere.
Be sure to install Skype on both Sparky Jr's computer and the
control computer. You will need a Skype user account for each
machine as well. No worries though. It's all free. Before going
further, test Skype out with a simple videochat. Once everything is
set up, then feel free to...
