Control your robots with your Nintendo DS

If your robots are becoming unruly, keep in them in line with this Nintendo DS application called PekeePilot.

The nifty video above shows off the many ways this software can control a robot, including stylus strokes, Mario 64 DS-style screen touch control, and even motion tilt using a sensing cartridge. It’s like an all-purpose, multi-style robot remote control.

Go Nintendo linked us to this video, but included no details. We found this French development Web page that talks about the project, and it seems that this was a school project for an engineering student. They say that they used the DS’s wifi connection to control the robot.

It’s amazing how the DS design and functionality has brought out creativity in so many people. What will they think of next?
