With the growth of computer science and cybernetics, the first mobile robots debuted during World War II. In the decades since, further advancements have made it possible to create a wide range of mobile robots, all with varying purposes and capabilities. But now, Instructables user MarioaraR explains how to make your very own Spy Rover with a chipKIT Wi-FIRE.
As smart homes are becoming more and more de rigueur, Instructables user skorpyon1992 created a timely project, the FPiDroid House. This project is still in beta testing, but has shown a lot of potential so far. By using the Nexys 3 (or any of our FPGA boards), you too could connect a lot of your devices to monitor and control your very own smart home.
