Basically, they’re remotely-controlling a Senseta rover from a Google Nexus One, with an Arduino and Bluetooth in-between.  The Arduino and Android pairing ostensibly makes for a such small someone bundle, which in invoke effectuation the rover is lighter, more mobile and uses inferior power.  It’s also a fairly priced alternative; including a Nexus One, it every came to low $600 (though that doesn’t allow the rover itself).
