This is a tele-presence robot made using Raspberry Pi, Mindstorms Nxt, Usb Robotic arm and a Webcam. This robot is controlled using a very simple web interface and is connected using a wifi dongle.
This robot uses a battery pack and can be recharged while running. Currently is not autonomous, but given all the software available for the raspberry Pi this can be done. Right now is only a platform to move around the house.
Powered Usb Hub
Battery pack with two usb outputs and one 9v output.
USB Robotic Arm
Standard Debian distribution from Rasperry Pi website
lighttpd web server
Py-usb downloaded directly from sourceforge
I got some inspiration (and code) from this excellent project
And this one:

and the one that sent a raspi to 40 km closer to the edge of the space.
