Dog Bot: Lego Robot Rover With Webcam

Here’s how to make a Lego robot you can control from any screen over wifi. It also has a webcam so you can see where your going and LED lights for eyes ! This is a great project to do with your kids as they can do the logo building and you can involve them in as much of the electronics as they are happy with.
There is lots of flexibility in how you implement this project, and this means you can easily take it to pieces and redesign again. I found it useful, when I got stuck to simply start again. Once you have done this a few times, its pretty easy and quick to rebuild from the ground up. The great thing about this is that you don’t need to be worried about “breaking” anything as you’ll develop the skills to easily rebuild.
