Video: iPhone Controls Robot -- Dooms Humanity



University of South Florida Students, Rodrigo Guiterrez and Jeff Craig, created a native iPhone app to control iRobot's Packbot over Wi-Fi.


The app streams video directly to the iPhone so they can sneak on to other college campuses and steal their precious mascots. Right now, the app uses arrows on the screen to control the robot, but soon, they hope to control it with the accelerometer.


Check out the video and get read for your Roomba to take over your home when the App Store hits in early July.
