Mobile Virtual Presence Device? Answered
Right, so in "The Big Bang Theory" there is an episode where Sheldon makes an rc stand with a monitor on, and it has live footage of his face on it. There are ways to do this, but they all seem to point to using an rc car with a 10 metre range and 30 minutes battery. The flaw with this, is that if you want to be at work using one, or at someone's house with it, then you're gonna need a lot more than 10 metres! How can you make it so that you can control it anywhere, either using wifi or just connecting somehow? (I'm sorry, I'm really bad at electronics, so excuse my poor understanding.) As an example, you don't need wifi to text someone, so do you need it to control an rc vehicle? Ideally, I'd like to make one at about £300-£400, and as like the one from the big bang theory as possible, so not just a tiny stand that people have to keep charging and you have to crane your neck to see. I'd be happy to use a £60 tablet with skype for the video, but what I'm mainly concerned about is how to control the rc stand/vehicle from a distance away.
Thanks a lot!
