Resources and Going Further

This tutorial is based on a blog post from a few weeks back. Check it out!

Because this project is Open Source, you can expand on this project and make it your own. By adding port forwarding to your router, you could make the robot accessible from anywhere in the world if you have an Internet connection. Or maybe you want to replace the motors with servos to create your own pan/tilt camera, or even a nerf gun for a remote controlled sentry!
