As I was preparing some demos for TechEd Developers Barcelona, I recorded one of them.
The purpose is to show how to use Robotics Studio to remotely drive a robot from a Windows Mobile device using Robotics Studio... seems complicated!
Finally not that much.

All steps are detailled in this screencast:
   - create a simple service with Visual Studio 2005
   - use Microsoft Visual Programming Language to create the Application
   - Generate the Compact Framework project
   - Deploy on Windows Mobile
   - Drive robot!

      Excellent example Olivier. It worked on the first attempt for me!

      I have expanded your example a little to use buttons as well as the keyboard without needing the WindowsKeyboardListner. (There is nothing wrong with the keyboard listner -- I just prefer to keep things a little more compact.)

      The only problem I have now is that my application will not shut down on the PDA and I have to kill the process Sad  This does not happen on Windows XP and it is executing the same shutdown code. (I have built a service with both desktop and CF versions.)

      hi! It was great to watch the video!

      Can u suggest some ways to make multiple boe-bots work through the bluetooth enabled laptop?

      What kind of modification would it require in the code?

      Thanks a lot!

      Once again, a pretty neat demo!
