Glenn Pipe of the Dallas Personal Robotics Group uses an iPhone to control his full-size R2D2 replica. He developed the control interface using Mrmr, an open source toolkit for controlling live systems via mobile devices like the iPhones. Glenn is working on using the iPhone's accelerometer as well as touch screen controls to operate the Astromech's dome rotation, feet motors, JEDI light controller, and sound system. The video above show his progress with the dome. More video after the break shows servos being controlled by the iPhone's accelerometers and some cool footage of the partially complete R2 zooming around the house.
