      I love the length of the explanation for how WiMo works... Sure the whole thing is a bit over engineered... it’s still a great and entertaining demo of what can be done with the platform and devices that support it.

      I'll be posting sample code and all the info on how to build WiMo in the coming days... stay tuned to http://blogs.msdn.com/windowsmobile

      Right now, i'm just using the ImageSink Filter, so it's very inefficient, but i do get about 1 to 2 frames per second.  I'll post the code to that as well, and then post updates as i get it tuned.

      Well done gentlemen!  I will be breaking ground on CBLPath's first WiMo-based coffee machine next week. 

      I love the level of detail that you managed to pack into this demo.  The new capabilities of Windows Mobile are going to be extremely useful in a courier management product that we're gearing up for this fall.

      Hi Mel,
      I come from China.
      Last month I attended MEDC China and enjoyed your two lectures about Windows Mobile 2005. Your lectures impress me a lot!
      As you know, watching your streaming above from China is quite difficult because of the network, and the download link doesn't work.
      Would you like to update it, please? I'll appreciate your help:)

      sir just want to ask if you used WiFi as your transmisson medium?? It is possible to connect directly the wifi module to the microcontroller or there is a translator for wifi module and microcontroller to communicate??? thanks!!!

      From the phone to the microcontroller, i used bluetooth.  In this demo of WiMo i used WiFi from the Pocket PC to the Smartphone (via an access point, not adhoc) that is on the robot.

Is that wi-fi module???Meaning instead of smartphones, we will use wifi module and connect it to microcontroller.. Is that possible?? thanks..
