Introduction: ROVERBOT

** This Instructable is under construction **

UPDATE: Roverbot electronics have been moved from a breadboard to a protoboard.  Battery has been mounted above the rear axle for better pick-up and turning ability.  Roverbot web interface queue has been added along with an admin page for absolute control over the bot during public showings.

Roverbot is a wireless web-enabled RC vehicle made from Truckbot parts.

    You should probably just save your instructable rather than publishing it, since we want to see finished products, and you will not show up in the recent lists when you are done if you publish now, so there's less chance of being featured. Just my thought.
