Looks like the iPhone makes for a great R2D2 robot controller. It’s cool to see the new iPhone technology interface and control a robot that we remember from our past. Nice to see the endeavor pay off with the robots first steps. :)

“I found a way to remote control my R2D2 with an iPhone. In the videos I demonstrate controlling a servo and the dome motor using an iPhone using the accelerometer (tilting the iPhone controls it) and using a slider control on the touch screen. Other touch screen controls are possible too such as rotary controls, buttons, XY controls, and multitouch as well as gestures. I should be able to interface with my J.E.D.I display as well and type in text messages in the iPhone that will scroll across the front or rear logic displays.”
