Eventually the RT-01 robot will be jam packed with processing power and
sensors. Currently slated is.

1 - TI MSP430 @ 25mhz.
1 - Lego Mindstorms NXT brick
1 - Lego Mindstorms RCX brick
1- Core Duo Android Tablet @ 1.2 ghz
These processing systems will be connected together to
The system will be open source, and both the hardware and
software process will be documented for replication.
More pics and video to come, but here are a few.
