Remember when we first spoke of WPBots, a website dedicated to taking Windows Phone (among other platforms) to the next level? Well, they are on the way to creating Skynet with the SmartBot mini prototype.
This robot will cater for every Windows Phone size, including the massive HTC Titan. The SDK allows the robot to be controlled with seven movements and uses the camera API to bring in the following functionality:
- Face tracking
- Object tracking
- Face recognition
- Light tracking
- Tag reading (data matrix, bar code, etc.)
- Edge detection for maze resolver
- Line follower
There's even more than this which is set to make any hackers day. Head on over to WPBots for more detail. A video demo is to be uploaded this week.
