One of the best resources for all things DIY, MAKE Magazine, just published a story I wrote about Sparky, the Autonomous Telepresence Robot project that I've been working on since the early 90's.
The project has come along way since those early days, transforming from a crude assemblage of found parts and junk into a robust, web-based, mobile telepresence platform that uses cutting edge technology to function almost anywhere.
There are free instructions and software available at Gomi Style
, so you can build your own Sparky robot using stuff you probably already have.
