Picture of Building an Android Basic Programmable Tank for Less Than $50.00
The Smartphone based robot tank is s great project to build with your kids.  The project can be completed within an hour and requires no soldering or special tools.  When complete, simply download and install the EMGRobotics Audio Robot application on your phone.  The application will use the camera in your phone and various computer vision algorithms to roam around looking for a face or a specific color.  The robot can also follow a line or chase other robots around the room.  Currently only an Android application is available but an iPhone application is in the works.

Step 1: The RC Tank for this Project can be Purchased from Radio Shack

Is the motor controller open source hardware? I think it would be great to see an instructable on how to build the controller as well.
