Robot controlled by iPhone and HTC Hero, attempts to play PS3

Behold the Heximotional, a hexapod robot created by UK robotics student Robert Stephenson. Last month Stephenson caused a robotic stir when he filmed his hexapod robot being controlled by an iPhone. According to Stephenson the iPhone app required a computer to control the robot but now he’s made an Android app which removes any need for a computer. Keep an eye out at the end of the video (4:53) for the Heximotional being used to play a PS3 – it’s 3rd person 3rd person gaming.
