If you remember the Truckbot (a robot controlled by an Android phone), this Boxbot will just look like a huge version of the robot. Despite being a larger scale model, its wheels are powered by some $16 windshield wipers, which certainly helps to keep the cost of the project down. Apparently the laptop-brain is also temporary, as the folks behind this are looking to hook up an Android-powered cell phone to it in the future, bringing it closer to a large version of the Truckbot. Would you considering coming up with one of these as a weekend project?
