I was playing with the AVM navigator and it turns out it is pretty good at being used for advanced stuff like indoor navigation....

Hope you guys like the video...

Still don't know what I want to do with it yet....

Robotic Claw Inspired By Doombot.

In an earlier thread Doombot had mentioned he may put a ping sensor on his robotic claw to sense and pick up objects automatically...
