It will be 3G cellular, so you can control it from anywhere you get coverage.

:lol:
I recently purchased the arm-mounted Thermonuclear warhead Phidget 45171 along with the 1 megaton warhead controller, and was having trouble with the countdown timer. It keeps crashing every time it reaches "3" - what am I doing wrong?

you need to cast the timer value as a Phidget.GTFOInt

What was the name of this SNES Robot Game? There is a game I remember where you used robots to fight the computer or another player. You would be in a level with several robot shells laying about. You could get out of your robot and just be a little guy with a jet pack and a gun, but you could be killed easily by your opponent in a robot shell. If you were fighting another player, it would use a split screen mode since the level was good sized.

I dunno, but the first thing that popped into my head was whether or not it was possible to mod R.O.B. using some sort of phidget.

From the looks of it, it wouldn't be difficult at all. Looks like it uses run of the mill DC electric motors.

....so i guess you'd just snip the leads, feed them into the Phidgets DC controller, and voilla.

Speaking of ancient video game gear .... I recently found a "Camerica freedom stick" in my grandmother's basement. I've been dying to experiment with it using my Phidgets IR.
I mean.....it's kinda goofy, and I'm not really sure what I could use it for. It's really just to satisfy my curiosity.
