WiMo. Mobile Phone Goes Mobile

WiMo uses a Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone as the central "brain" of the robot.
This Smartphone sits directly ontop. The Smartphone communicates to a microcontroller via Bluetooth and also communicates with a Pocket PC (and soon to be desktop pc instead) via WiFi.
The Pocket PC can be used to remotely control WiMo.

WiMo is learning to make conversation and respond to voice commands via some new prototype APIs in Voice Command. These APIs are not available yet, but we are looking to make them available in the future. WiMo can respond to his name, tell jokes if asked, and even dance!

Assembly instructions will be posted to this link soon:
