Pocket PC Robot

I was surfing the net today and came across this post from 2004 on the MSDN blogs. Yes, it's a little old but still a cool idea. Anyways Mike made a humanoid robot that is controlled from a Pocket PC. First I thought to myself why the heck would anyone use a Pocket PC to control a robot? I came to the conclusion that in 2004 it was probably a heck of a lot easier to do then control it using any of the other mobile platforms.

The robot needs some work but its a great start. Just click on the image on the page here to see the video. The robot movement isn't very fluid and there is also a balance issue but it is probably due to each leg using a different type of servo. Fun video to watch if your bored.
