Robot Control Over WIFI for LEGO MINDSTORMS (Video)

Ever wanted to control a robot with your web browser?  Dexter Industries has written an example and library to help you do that.  Now you can communicate very quickly, with a webpage, from anywhere in the world.  The new example software allows a user to dynamically control the robot from a webpage from a browser on a laptop, computer, smart-phone, or tablet device.

We made a short video of a wifi-controlled robot.  The program allows you to control the direction of the Robot, make it beep, and get sensor information from the robot.  Unlike HTTP-based protocols, this can send information very quickly, without delay, allowing you to quickly and smoothly control MINDSTORMS NXT robots over the Internet.
