Carl Monk’s taken some components that he’s collected during his time working with the Pi and has come up with a robot that streams live video and allows you to control it over a mobile phone or tablet using a simple web interface. He’s used a 4tronix Microcon, an Adafruit Pan & Tilt and, of course, a Pi camera. Read about his project here which he’s called ToffeeBot. He’s open-sourced all his code so you can have a go at replicating it.
