MacMini Robot Article available

MacTech Magazine - September CoverThe September issue of MacTech is now available, and it contains my article "A MacMini Robot: Building A Vision Capable Robot Using A Mac Mini", detailing the exploits of our mad-dashed, 48-hour code-fest to program, test, debug, and run a vision-controlled autonomous macmini powered robot at the AD-HOC/MacHack programming conference.

You can get some info here, or see Perfectly Scientific's robotics page. I am working on putting up a wiki site for project details and development, and George Storm is putting up an online group repository together as well, so watch out!

Of course, MacTech can be a little on the pricey side for non-programmers (well, same $$ price, but maybe less $$/value ratio), but is a good read for any and all Apple programmers.
