    How cool would controlling one of these w/ .Net?

    hacking it would be pretty easy.  we've modified controllers before.

    I'm thinking maybe a netduino w/ a GPS shield on it & a wifi shield? The thing might weigh a ton though

    so you're thinking 100% self controlled.  hmm, could do that in a few different ways.  Neat idea but from what i've seen is those things in real life, they have poor control but maybe they under inflated it or just were really crappy drivers.

    yeah, I'm thinking 100% self control. I think poor controls can be overcame by the unit knowing where it is... so that it can say something like... 100% power forward until I get to this coordinates...

    Got my netduino to blink morse code  now... Next step, investigating the GPS shield... or perhaps the wifi SPI board I've seen can do triangulation... that's cake right hehe

    Crap! Apparently GPS units don't work too well indoors
