Hi.

Will it be possible to play with real robots in the future by
controling them over the Internet?

Man against machine from your computer?

The future is already here. Technologists call this Telepresence.

I am considering altering my Roomba for web cam and remote patrol capabilities when I travel. Not only will I have the peace of mind my house (and pets) is safe but also that it will be clean when I get home.

The full suite of software and hardware to do this has just come of age in the last couple of years. Very soon, we will see these applications appearing in inexpensive off the shelf consumer products. Presently, there is some assembly required for the most part. Often the S/W and H/W are from different sources and you need a little hacker blood in you.

If a dumb macho guy can shoot a real remote weapon at a helpless animal some where in Texas, from the comfort of his home in “Anywhere USAâ€
