This is a zigbee based walker. I also have a USB version of this robot.
I use this robot along with a custom Windows application that I wrote to experiment with different walking gates. I have also started experimenting with using an accelerameter for closed loop balance.
This is a WinCE based computer vision robot. It tracks objects based on color. The latest version can also track based on vertical lines ( used to find doorways ).
The processor is a ARM9 based iMX21.
