Cellbots Android app wants to be your robot’s brain [Video]

We first wrote about the Cellbots project back in March, when Android tinkerers were first looking at the potential to use a Googlephone as the brain for simple Arduino-based robots. Now that project has spawned a full - and comprehensive - Android app, allowing you to use your handset as a remote control for a robot (with various platforms supported), as a brain directly mounted on the robot itself, or even pairing two handsets to delivery both roles.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 51 2010

Welcome to the first post Christmas Week in Review! I hope you had a great Christmas, let's get right to it. We heard Monday that wireless carriers were openly looking at ways that they can charge users a fee per service. It seems like a scheme to get user to take advantage of the sponsored services that the carrier offers rather than using third party services. Carrier services are expected to be offered free while things like YouTube would cost 50 cents monthly.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 48 2010

Welcome to the latest edition of the SlashGear Week in Review! Apple rejected an app for inclusion on the App Store this week because it was a magazine app about Android. The publisher of the app said that the person at Apple he spoke with said, "You know… your magazine. It’s just about Android…. we can’t have that in our App Store." A report came in early in the week that Windows Phone 7 was outsold by Android devices 15:1 in the UK. The revelation came by way of an aggregator of store deals in the UK called MobilesPlease.
